Pakistan- Red-vented Bulbul ( Pycnonotus cafer)

Here is my first ever bird cover from Pakistan, and what a beauty with the attractive positioning of the stamps and nice clear cancels. The front of the cover has a block of 8 stamps, and the back a strip of four plus older definitive stamps to make the correct postage. Issued as a definitive stamp, the bird is a Red-vented bulbul, endemic to Pakistan and also introduced to other countries such as Hawaii, Fiji, new Zealand and Samoa,  where the birds have become pests from damaging orchard fruits.
