The Oregon official state bird, chosen in 1927, is the Western Meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta). The bird was chosen by school children in a poll sponsored by the Oregon Audubon Society.

The Western Meadowlark is native throughout Western North America.

The Western Meadowlark has brown feathers with buff and black markings. Its underside is bright yellow with a black crescent on the breast; its outer tail feathers are mainly white and are easily visible when it flies.

Meadowlarks are members of the blackbird family and it is known for its distinctive and beautiful song.
