bird blogs most often (per capita)?  Washington State, of course.  StateStats lets one choose a term and see what state searches for that term most often.  It also let’s one see how the state rankings in other metrics compare to the rankings for the search term.  From this, one can see that there is a weak correlation between states that search for “bird blog” and those that have high population density, a large proportion of same-sex couples, and that cast their votes for Barack Obama.  However, states that searched more often for birds are completely different, being more northern, having a higher suicide rate, and being older (Idaho leads the way). Oh, the wonders of the internet!
