When this photo of the Chaparrals plaque (below) was sent to me by Bob Dahl,
I wondered what a chaparral was since the graphic looks a lot like some of the
plaques above. A search on the Internet found that "The chaparral bird, or
roadrunner, was adopted as the official state bird of New Mexico on March 16,
Some additional plaques on this site with roadrunner graphics
have spelled chaparral different ways. The club from OK spelled it Chaparels
(missing a R and an E instead of an A) and the club from NM spelled it
Chapparals (with an extra P and a missing R).
Although these plaques don't
have a graphic, I think Chaperalls was misspelled.
