25.11.12Mozambique has in 2012 issued several stamps with images of extinct bird species. The IOC World Bird List incorporates species that have become extinct since the early 1500′s. They are listed in their respective families. The species has to be known from physical evidence. Species known solely from literary sources are excluded. These species on the Mozambique stamps are not in the IOC list, but they are known from literary sources, and they are presented on BirdLife International factsheets:
Reunion Gallinule Porphyrio coerulescens
Guadeloupe Amazon Amazona violacea
Jamaican Green-and-yellow Macaw Ara erythrocephala
