Maine State Stamps

Copyright © 1997 WriteLine. All Rights Reserved. White Pine Cone
State Flower:

White Pine Cone and Tassel

With its nickname, "The "Pine Tree State," it's no wonder Maine selected the fragrant and unique white pine cone and tassel to represent the State Flower.

State Bird:

Chickadee

Unlike other birds that fly south in winter to avoid the bitter chill of Maine the hearty and cheerful little chickadee remains, chirping merrily through snow, ice, wind and rain.

According to E.B. White, the Black-capped Chickadee, (also the State Bird for Massachusetts), "was put on earth to demonstrate the power of positive thinking. No day is dark, no night is cold, no hour is evil, no harm is in sight, no news is bad. An acrobat and a optimist, the Chickadee is perfectly named (he named himself), perfectly designed. We should all wear a black cap, ignore weather reports, and make friends easily."
