BIRDS IN THE BORDER
FLIGHT March 2015 – Volume 29 No. 3
Sierra Leone - 2014 - Farm animals MS

There is no mistaking the domestic poultry in the surrounds of this sheet.

Czech Republic - 3.9.14 - Beskydy

As well as the Nutcracker on the stamp their are two birds in the top left hand label and two more in the right hand margin:

Label:

Eurasian Bullfinch, Pyrrhula pyrrhula;
Ural Owl, Strix uralensis.

Border:

White-backed Woodpecker, Dendrocopos leucotos;
Gray-faced Woodpecker, Picus canus.

Uruguay - 16.9.14 - Anniversaries
The bird in the surrounds is an Emerald of some kind. The best fit I can find is White-bellied Emerald, Amazilia candida, though the bill is not quite right. Help would be welcome.

St. Vincent & Grenadines - 19.5.14 - Farm animals

In the right surrounds we have (from top to bottom):

Common Wood-Pigeon, Columba palumbus;

Ring-necked Pheasant, Phasianus colchicus;

Helmeted Guineafowl, Numida meleagris.
