I'm trying to get ahold of my old pal Felix. The last I knew he was travelling the US, so I wandered around - but it's a very big place! I did bump into his son in Milwaukee. He told me that Felix left for a birdwatching holiday, but unfortunately never told his son where! Felix did leave this note behind though:

LEPSPCIEIURLICAOTAL-CEUSCLOAELEDAIIPCTNNS-DOMTRIUASRGURISUT

Where on earth can I find my friend?!

Felix is visiting:

Three states identified by their state bird:

LEPSPCIEIURLICAOTAL -> Maine: POECILE ATRICAPILLUS (Chickadee)

CEUSCLOAELEDAIIPCTNNS -> Louisiana: PELECANUS OCCIDENTALIS (Brown pelican)

DOMTRIUASRGURISUT -> Wisconsin: TURDUS MIGRATORIUS (American robin)
