My grandmother is from the Pennsylvania and she recently introduced me to the Pennsylvania state bird and flower. I actually thought that the ruffled grouse was quite plain looking, but I suppose the PA state bird is better known for its tasty meat rather than anything else.
As far as the Pennsylvania state bird's name goes I thought it was rather cute. I honestly though the bird would be a lot fluffier than it actually is. I suppose it is just as unique as any other state bird when it comes down to it. At least now I can explain to anyone who asks me about the bird mug my grandmother gave me.
