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.

This is one of the many excellent covers I received from Wand Jia Yi (www.gonewithpostcards.blogspot.com). The stamps and m/s used were issued in 2004. On the m/s you can see Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus) which was already presented in a cover from Thailand. The two stamps depict Indian or Blue Peafowl (Pavo cristatus). This pheasant, which is native to South Asia, is the national bird of India. It feeds on grain, berries, seeds, fruit, insects, lizards, snakes and small rodents. On the first stamp you can see the leucistic variety of the species.
