The actual state bird of Alaska is the Willow Ptarmigan. Sometimes it seems like mosquitoes are the state birds here, too, though. 
This came from my dad's brother who lives in Alaska
during the summer.
I've never been to Alaska, so reading these Fun Facts about Alaska was really fascinating:

  • Alaska is larger than the next four largest states combined

  • Alaska contains 17 of the 20 highest peaks in The United States

  • Alaska is only 50 miles from Russia.

  • Alaska has 29 volcanoes

  • Alaska has 33,000 miles of coastline...more than the rest of the lower 48 combined (This includes island shores)

  • Alaska is the only state to have coastlines on 3 different seas. Arctic Ocean, Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea

  • There are more than three million lakes in Alaska
