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.

Thank you Heather for this card from Australia. The lower two values of the four 2009 Songbirds of Australia stamps are used for postage.
Green Catbird (Ailuroedus crassirostris): This bowerbird is endemic to the east coast of Australia where it lives in subtropical forests. It feeds on fruit and flowers.
Noisy Scrub-bird (Atrichornis clamosus): It is also endemic to Australia. It lives in temperate shrubland but due to habitat loss it is threatened and for a while in the past it was considerated exctinct.
