Traveling Birds means a bird stamp with a legible postmark to show where the bird has traveled from. The town name on the cancellation is plotted on a Google Map of Traveling Birds. The stamps can then be viewed by clicking any name in the list or by clicking any of the markers. Bird stamps uploaded here can be viewed on the map http://g.co/maps/tpjra. I hope you the journey with the birds as we travel around the globe.
I'll start the journey in Melbourne, one of my home towns
