The Chinese Ring-Necked Pheasant is the state bird. It was
introduced to South Dakota in 1898 and is easily recognized
by it’s colorful imagery. It is also known for it’s delicious meat.
Since it is primarily a Midwestern bird, pheasant is considered
a delicacy in many other states.
The pasque is the state flower. It is also called the May Day
flower. It grows wild throughout the state, and its blooming is
one of the first signs of spring in South Dakota. A member of
the buttercup family, the pasque is a small, lavender flower.
The state animal is the coyote, a natural
predator of small game and rodents. The
adaptable coyote hunts the open prairies
and fields over the entire state, but occurs
in greatest numbers along the Missouri
River, its tributaries and in the Black Hills.
The Black Hills spruce, a member
of the evergreen family, is the
state tree. The pyramid-shaped
tree has short, blue-green needles
and slender comes.
