Birds on Stamps

The theme for this week in Sunday Stamps is Birds. Though Viridian wrote this is "a perennial theme", I have published birds on stamps just once (thanks to Sunday Stamps again!).

Let's show some more beautiful received birds.

From Belgium

From Finland

Update: After reading the comments I must add that... you are right, it is not easy to see the birds on this stamp! Maybe because the main topic is love. This stamp belongs to a series called Drops of Happiness issued on 22nd January 2009 to celebrate friendship on St. Valentine's Day. I have received three of five. You can see the set here.

 I like a lot this stamp from Monaco, maybe because the birds are flying.

From Russia

From Switzerland

    1. Thanks for the extra info.

      The songbirds US stamps from this year are really pretty - one of the nicest sets of the year in my opinion.

  3. I love the ruffled feathers of the Russian crane and its little chick.

  4. I agree about the Monaco stamp being the favourite. It looks as though those Great Tits are squaring up to one another.
