There are a lots of beautiful stamps on birds – maybe the size of birds fits well of stamp format or birds themselves are beautiful anyway, however they are pictured.  This fact puts me off from collecting stamps of birds – unless they are nicely designed specifically for stamps.  So, the reason why I bought this 60’s set of 7 stamps from Czechoslovakia is because of their highly sophisticated engraving lines and simplified background.

Beginning of February – when birds start to sing for their partners and trying to settle their new homes.  This little sound article on bird songs helps you to identify what you are hearing.
