Welcome to my collection. My topic is birds and I collect mostly covers but I will show you a variety of philatelic material that is part my collection.

Another Norfolk Island set issued in 2009 along with the FDC. I like the idea of showing the birds' eggs on the FDC.
New Zealand Fantail (Rhipidura fuliginosa): This bird can be found in New Zealand, Chatham Islands and Lord Howe Island. It has a few subspecies. It feeds on insects.
Pacific Robin (Petroica multicolor): It lives in the forests of the south western Pacific islands and it has 14 subspecies. It feeds on insects, spiders and pseudoscorpions.
Australian Golden Whistler (Pachycephala pectoralis): It can be found in Australia and Indonesia living in forests. It eats insects, spiders and other small arthropods.
Sacred Kingfisher (Todiramphus sanctus): It lives in river valleys, mangroves and forests in Australia, Fiji, Norfolk Island, New Caledonia, New Zealand etc. It is 19-23 cm Long and it feeds on insects, small fish, small rodents and reptiles.
