BIRDS IN THE BORDER
FLIGHT September 2011 – Volume 26 No. 1
Argentina - 16.4.11 - Antarctic Treaty

As well as the Gentoo Penguin on stamp there is an image of a Brown Skua, Stercorarius antarcticus, in the lower left surrounds.

Bosnia (SRPSKA) - 10.5.11 - Birds of Bardaca

The centre labels of this sheet of 5 strips make up the image of a
Gray Heron, Ardea cinerea.

Togo - 15.2.11 - Owls

The stamp features Great Gray Owl, Strix nebulosa.

In the surrounds, clockwise from top left, we have (all correctly inscribed):

Rock Eagle-Owl, Bubo bengalensis; Long-eared Owl, Asio otus;
Little Owl, Athene noctua; Elf Owl, Micrathene whitneyi;
Great Horned Owl, Bubo virginianus.

Hungary - 8.4.11 - Budapest City Park

The leftmost stamp features American Flamingo, Phoenicopterus ruber. In the left surrounds there is a Toco Toucan, Ramphastos toco, albeit a rather oddly coloured one. There is also an unidentified bird which may be a New World Oriole - an Icterus species. I should appreciate any help with this.
