The purple finch (Carpodacus purpureus) was designated the official state bird of New Hampshire in 1957. The selection of the purple finch as a symbol of New Hampshire was supported by the Audubon Society of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, and the State Federation of Women’s Clubs.
