I've not seen that Channel Tunnel stamp before falconrw, nice stamp. I think on that occasion the rooster gave his wings a rest and took the train

Not certain if you would find any more Cobb's Wren as they are endemic to the Falkland Islands and not found anywhere else as stated on the Souvenir Sheet.

There are about 2000 breeding pairs left but they are not not on any of the inhabited islands where rats were introduced.

Ortolan Bunting(Emberiza hortulana) from Brestanica,Slovenia flew on that special date.
Although there are millions of theses birds in Europe, it's thought numbers are declining due to habitat destruction.

The 1991 stamp is a Northern Cardinal(Cardinalis cardinalis) and has got to be the most popular bird in the USA This showy red bird is the Official State bird for seven states: Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana. As you can imagine it was very popular as a caged bird but sales are now banned
