Northern Mockingbird - Texas state bird

Texas designated the mockingbird  as official state bird in 1927. The Texas legislature noted that the mockingbird:

" found in all parts of the State, in winter and
in summer, in the city and in the country, on the prairie and in the woods and a singer of distinctive type, a fighter for the protection of his home, falling, if need be, in its defense, like any true Texan..."

Field of bluebonnet flowers

The bluebonnet was designated the official state flower of Texas in 1901. Also called buffalo clover, wolf flower, and el conejo (spanish for "the rabbit"), bluebonnets are to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland. The bluebonnet flower is named for the color and sunbonnet-shaped petals. The bluebonnet is not only the state flower - Texas has also designated an official bluebonnet tartan, song,city (Ennis, Texas), festival (Chappell Hill Bluebonnet Festival), and trail (also in Ennis). The bluebonnet flower is named for the color and sunbonnet-shaped petals
