Start here if you missed any of our Across the USA in 31 Days series. Every day this month I will bring you a small sample of printables from my larger eBook, which will be released later this month. I hope you will join me this month as we travel from state to state across the USA.
New Hampshire is located in the New England states and one of those areas I would so much like to visit one day. I have seen pictures of the state in the Fall and that is when I would visit for sure. Such vibrant, beautiful colors. It was the first of the original 13 colonies to establish a government and its own state constitution in January 1776. Just six months later it became one of the original 13 states that founded the United States of America. In June 1788 it was the ninth state to ratify the US Constitution, which brought the document into effect.
Today you can download the State Bird Coloring Pages for New Hampshire. Their state bird is the Purple Finch, which is seen year round in the northern state. Throughout the summer months you can see them in groups of 20 or so while they breed. The song of the Purple Finch is sweet and continued. Purple Finches sometimes add in the sounds of other species, including Barn Swallows, American Goldfinches, Eastern Towhees, and Brown-headed Cowbirds. It uses its big beak and tongue to crush seeds and extract the nut. They do a similar trick to get at nectar without eating an entire flower, and also to get to a seed buried inside a fleshy fruit. Adult males are mostly raspberry red, while adult females have light brown upper parts and white underparts with dark brown streaks throughout. They also have a white line about above their eyes. I tried to find out why they were named “Purple Finch” when they have no purple on them, but I came up empty. Read more about this bird here while the kids color these pages. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
