Dedicated to birding, bugs, plants and other random nature stuff.
I was browsing around Wikipedia and somehow came across the list of all of the state quarters. Check out how cool this Oklahoma state quarter is! It's coming in 2008.
I think that's the best bird design on a quarter yet.
It is a most excellent design.
I really like it, too! I love Scissortails...Although, I do also like the Idaho quarter. I'm assuming it's a falcon on that one?
Woops! I just realized my link to the quarters page on Wiki was broken. That Idaho one is amazing. I must have skipped right by it. Wiki labels it as "Peregrine Falcon." I'll give them that. It looks like it should be available already as of June. South Dakota has a Ring-necked Pheasant, which is oddly enough their state bird. It's not native people!The Scissor-tailed Fly is definitely cool, albeit a bit out of proportion, but cool nonetheless.
When I was a kid growing up in the Rio Grande Valley, I just took scissor-tails for granted. They were everywhere, like robins or sparrows. But by the time I left the Valley for good back in late 80s, they weren't as common as they had been when I was younger.
