Ryukyu Robin / アカヒゲ

February 10, 2010


27 February 1976 Japan
Ryukyu Robin (Erithacus komadori)
photogravure with engraving
designer: Yoshiomi Higashikadoi
engraver: Tsuneo Kasano

The bird lived Southern islands, was certified as Natural monument in 1970.  Now it becames one of vulnerable species.  I wonder if that is the case for other animal and insect featured in the same series?  No voice file is found of this bird – no picture in Wikipedia.  I should send this stamp picture, as this is beautifully illustrated.
