ornithological stamps for Liisa's collection, but whatever

stamps which depict recognizable birds, preferably such that

We have three sets of stamp collections:
- ornithological collection, which is taxonomically ordered
- worldwide collection, which ordered by country and chronologically within

If you wish to exchange stamps with us, and especially if you have
spare copies ornithological stamps, please feel free to contact me.
Let me know what kinds (e.g. countries, themes) of stamps you would
like to get from us.
However, our stamp hobbies have been in a rather frozen state for
a few years now.
