American Bird Conservancy:
Birds are sources of enjoyment and public pride. Birds play an important role in communities by their aesthetic values and as sources of public pride. They provide a value to people through their very existence. Even non-birdwatchers may be thrilled to see Bald Eagles soaring overhead, and many people feel they would be deprived in some way if the birds disappeared. Likewise, what if your State Bird could no longer be found in its official state? While the range of the California Quail may never shrink to the point that the species will need to be considered threatened in the state, it could disappear from many parts of California.
