New Cayman stamps

Postby KarenS » Mon Oct 09, 2006 8:30 am

Twelve colourful postage stamps showcasing the Islands’ birds will be the Cayman Islands Postal Service newest release.

Cayman Islands Birds – Definitive Series, to be issued on Monday, will also commemorate World Postal Day, said a CIPS release.

This series depicts some of the birds described in Birds of the Cayman Islands by Patricia E. Bradley and Yves–Jacques Rey–Millet. The issue shows 11 endemic and one indigenous species. Two of the land birds illustrated in this series are listed internationally as threatened – the Cayman Parrot and the Vitelline Warbler.
