Colorado's State Symbols: The State Bird
The Lark Bunting was designated Colorado's State Bird in 1931. It is a black and white bird that makes its home on the plains of Colorado from April to September, then flies south in the winter. In the past it was sometimes referred to as the bobolink. You can find more about lark buntings from the Colorado Division of Wildlife's lark bunting page, including where to look for them. Check out some of the publications from our library for more information on this and other Colorado songbirds:
