Birds on Stamps

Many stamp collectors have thematic collections, some birders collect stamps; there are, therefore, a number of websites devoted to Bird Stamps.

Not all of the sites below are exclusively about bird stamps… some are commercial sites selling stamps, but all have something on them for Bird stamp Collectors.

I guess, if you are going to be a complete anorak, you should combine two really sad hobbies such as birding and stamp collecting. The Fatbirder admits to still having a bid thematic stamp collection accumulated in his youth.
