I like my bird stamps to be 'portrait' stamps if you see what I mean, so I can enjoy the beauty of them. Would I therefore include a stamp like this one?


Probably not, even though the stamp will give you much more information about the birds. Its habitat in this case.

I've just acquired quite a lot of nicely engraved stamps from newly independent Francophone countries. Among them were these very striking Senegal bird stamps, all engraved by Charles Mazelin.

You guys are going to love the bird feature in the September issue - it's on introduced birds (birds which were introduced to new habitats by humans).

And make sure you check out the picture credit to the 'headshot' (the main image on the first page).

Here's a cover I received in 2011 from Hong Kong, depicting 2 Bird stamps from the 2006 definitive issue:

SG 1404 - $1.90 Black-faced Spoonbill

SG 1405 - $2 Little Egret

Here is a perfectly cancelled stamp of a Singapore Western Yellow Wagtail for my Travelling birds map . It arrived today and I see its a 2010 reprint of the 2007 defintive series..which has had numerous reprints for all six stamps of the set. It would be quite a challenge to collect all the reprints. This particular one is labelled 2007F. I also like birds which are cancelled in their own place of residence.

That's an amazing used example on piece; so how to identify the various reprints? Is the inscription like the 2007F here an indicator in identifying the reprint year or is it the plate number?
