Adoption of the Oregon State Bird

The western meadowlark was chosen in 1927 by a popular vote of Oregon school children sponsored by the Oregon Audubon Society. In July 1927, Governor I. L. Patterson issued a proclamation naming it the state bird of Oregon. No legislative action was taken.

The Oregon Revised Statutes

The state bird is cross-referenced in Title 9, Chapter 186 of the Oregon Revised Statutes
