South Carolina State Bird

South Carolina State Bird

What bird best represents the Palmetto State? The Carolina wren narrowly beat the Carolina dove but was itself briefly replaced by the mockingbird.

The turkey and wood duck were later designated the official game bird and waterfowl. Several states call the turkey their official game bird, but the only other official wren is Arizona’s cactus wren.
