Another joint issue this time between Iran (cover) and Portugal (stamps) in 2009.
White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla): It is also known as Sea Eagle. This bird of prey can be found in northern Asia and northern Europe. Apart from other birds and small mammals it can also eat fish. With the reduce of food sources and the poisoning by farmers, the Sea Eagle has become an endangered species.
Osprey (Pandion haliaetus): It is a fish-eating bird of prey and it has four subspecies. It has a worldwide distribution and it is a migratory bird.
