    Stamps of birds

    Here you will find all our bird stamps: birdwatchers, seabirds, day and night raptors, palmipeds, passerines, land birds and walkers, as well as series of birds of different categories.

    To facilitate your search among our many thematic series, you can use filters in the left column (Sort of birds, country, year).

    We have chosen to create 9 categories of birds:

    • Waders:

    Birds living by the seas or marshes. They often live in groups and most are migratory. Some can be very large. You will find numerous series or leaflets on herons, storks, cranes, flamingos (big waders) but also on water hens, woodcocks (small waders).

    An example is a 2002 Antigua and Barbuda souvenir sheet.

    • Daytime birds of prey:

    Predatory birds that feed on live animals or dead bodies. Many stamps represent eagles, vultures or falcons as this series of stamps from Palestine in 1998.

    • Nocturnal raptors:

    Many collectors are passionate about this theme and we offer you many more series on owls, owls, grand dukes, hulottes or owls. Below is a magnificent souvenir sheet from Finland depicting several kinds of nocturnal raptors.
