Sunday Stamps # 143

It is Saturday night, and as I am sure you know, the USA government shutdown ended earlier this week. At the last second the government also avoided sending the world economy into a tailspin. However, this may all start over again in a few months.

Well, we can enjoy sharing some stamps this Sunday.  This week's theme is anything you wish.  In my opinion, there can never be enough stamps of birds.




The bird on the left is known as the Japanese white eye or mejiro.  It is native to many areas in east Asia.   The bird on the right is The Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), commonly abbreviated to just Night Heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world,  according to Wikipedia.  Both these stamps are from South Korea.

I hope you will join me with any stamp you wish this week.  Go crazy if you wish!

No Sunday Stamps next week as I am away at a big and busy professional meeting.
 We'll start again on November 3, with the theme the Arctic and Antarctic.

Birds are an excellent subject for stamps. The stamp on the left is especially pretty.

So true, birds on stamps are always welcome. Herons are fascinating birds to watch.

These are nice depictions. We could have a bird theme every week for a year and I would not run out of different stamps to post!

I'm always very fond of bird stamps too. Arctic/Antarctic might be harder...

Always pleased to see bird stamps from countries I have nothing from.
