On April 26, 2004 Finland issued a miniature sheet of six, 65c. stamps depicting indigenous "Animals of the Forest." The sheet is cut/imperforate around the stamp borders, except at the bottom. The upper right stamp of the sheet, the common raven (Corvus Corax) is shown here.

From Wikipedia, Common ravens have coexisted with humans for thousands of years...Some notable feats of problem-solving provide evidence that the common raven is unusually intelligent. Over the centuries...it has been revered as a spiritual figure or godlike creature."

This Finnish, 65c. stamp depicting an Eurasian, or common magpie (Pica pica) is from a miniature sheet of 6 "Summer Gardens" stamps issued on May 7, 2003.

From Wikipedia, The Eurasian magpie is one of the most intelligent birds, and is believed to be one of the most intelligent of all non-human animals. The expansion of its nidopallium is approximately the same in its relative size as the brains of chimpanzees, orangutans, and humans."
