Michigan State Bird
Adoption of the Michigan State Bird
The robin red breast was designated as the state bird of Michigan by House Concurrent Resolution No. 30, the Senate concurring, on April 8, 1931. The resolution read, in part:
The Michigan Compiled Laws
The robin was adopted by House Concurrent Resolution rather than an act of the Michigan Legislature. The adoption of the robin as the official state bird is therefore not documented in the statutory law of the Michigan Compiled Laws.
