This is a post for Sunday Stamps, this week's theme being Birds.


  1. Gorgeous selection, the Canadian heron is stunning, at first I thought it was a painting.

  2. I've not seen that great blue heron stamp before - it is an amazingly beautiful photo. Grebes are so cute. You don't often see a bird in song on a stamp, which has prompted me to look up the songs of all these chosen birds of yours.

  3. I love your choice, your interpretation of the theme! Beautiful choice of stamps, too!
    And how nice to see all scientific names in alphabetic order :-)


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
