Greetings. I'm new to this list, and had a question.
The recent story about changing the state bird of Oregon got me wondering - which bird would be the most "uniquely Oregon"? Ideally, by my measure that'd be a bird with a full-year range exactly matching the border of Oregon. Since that doesn't exist, which is the closest to it?
I was thinking perhaps a Wrentit, or "Oregon" Dark-eyed Junco, maybe Red-breasted Sapsucker. White-headed Woodpecker. Anyone have ideas?
