Thank you Hammer for this beautiful cover from Austria. The White-tailed Eagle stamp was issued in 2007.

The European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster) stamp was issued in 2009. This species live in southern Europe and in parts of western Asia and north Africa. It migrates to India, Sri Lanka and tropical Africa. Sexes are alike. It feeds with insects, mostly bees, which catches in the air. their nests are in the form of tunnels near sandy river banks. This birds live in colonies.
