Should New Jersey get a new state bird?
The American goldfinch, also long known as the eastern goldfinch, has held the title since 1935.
But is a cute, diminutive, little seedeater really a good representation of a state whose people pride themselves on being bold and brassy?
Wouldn't we be better represented by a more boisterous, yet handsome, tough and scrappy highflier like the laughing gull?
