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.

Nice cover with both machine and clear hand cancellation. However, the cancel on the first stamp doesn't cancel the envelope as well and if you look closely you can notice not only the date is two years older from the rest cancels but the town is different too. This stamp, which was issued in 2007, has been used twice. The second stamp was issued in 1995.

Barau's Petrel (Pterodroma baraui): It is a medium size petrel living in the area between Indonesia and western Australia. It feeds on small fish which catches by surface-seizing and plunge diving. It is an endangered species.

Common Tern (Sterna hirundo): Another sea bird which is migratory. It lives in the sud-arctic areas of Europe, north and central America and Asia. It also feeds on fish which catches by plunge diving. It doesn't fish just in the sea but in rivers and lakes too.
