31.10.18In Moldova Europa 1999 I had listed one stamp with birds. But there are more - see Chris Gibbins. These stamps have now been added.
26.09.18Uganda 1995.05 Christmas shall be deleted. There is no bird on the stamp.

The birds in Sierra Leone 03.07.1989 Japanese art are outside the stamp.
26.01.18Silver stamps have been added to Chad 2003.10-11 Eagle.
14.12.17I do not collect or list stamps from these Stamperija countries (since late 2016):
Centralafrica, Chad, Djibouti, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Maldives, Mozambique, Niger, Sao Tome, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Togo.
Stamperija has legal contracts with these countries, but the number of stamps produced are too large. This is my personal opinion, and other stamp collectors and lovers should follow their own opinion.
20.12.16Listing and publishing new stamps from Stamperija countries has come to an end on this website.
05.11.16The Guinea 2016.12 Extinct animals with a Great Auk has a second, living bird, Razorbill (Alca torda).

13.09.16There are two macaw spesies on the stamp in Sierra Leone 2015.22 with inscription Ara macao. The macaw to the left is Red-and-green Macaw Ara chloropterus and the macaw to the right is Scarlet Macaw Ara macao.
03.06.15I have added Spotted Owl Strix occidentalis to Guinea-Bissau 2014.13
23.10.14I have added an MS from Yemen Republic 1995
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
I shall include them, with these names. On my Family page, they shall be found as Prehistoric, Extinct.
11.12.11Athos is an autonomous and self-governed territory of Greece. Stamps from Athos are catalogued by Michel with numbers of their own as a subregion of Greece.

25.08.11I have removed Japan 01.03.11 Kawazu Sakura. It is a reprint of the 2006.01 prefecture stamp. I can't see any change and interprete it to be like a stock increase. There are also several other reprints of prefecture stamps, some with birds.
24.02.11The Japan 2010 Extinct pigeons stamps do not have a NIPPON inscription. They are locals and will be removed from my listings.
