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.

In 2010 Belgium issued a high value stamp and an ATM label showing the Barn Owl (Tyto alba). The ATM commemorates the Birdpex Expo which was held in Brussels on 9-12 of April 2010.
This owl is the most widespread of all birds. It has many subspecies, it is a nocturnal bird of prey as most owls and it eats small birds and mammals, toads, insects etc. Although it is not threatened globally in many places the Barn Owl faces constant poisoning.
