Debating... What Floridians think the state bird is?
Mosquito or Cockroach? Both are about the size of a bird and both outnumber all other birds, probably combined!
So is it the mosquito or the cockroach (they can fly)?

During daytime it is the mosquito or the lovebug or the no-seeum if you live near marshy areas. At night it's the flying palmetto bug-cockroach.

Actually, the "State Bird" roosts along I-95 primarily and tends to be attached to peopel in the form of a middle finger.
