Singapore- Red Jungle Fowl & Grey Peacock Pheasant
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Diplomatic relations with Vietnam, Singapore released this joint-issue pair of stamps on September 12, 2013 appropriately at Jurong Bird park in Singapore. The Grey Peacock -pheasant (Polyplectron bicalcaratum) also known as the Burmese Peacock pheasant is the national bird of Myanmar. The Red Jungle Fowl (Gallus gallus) is said to be the ancestor of all domestic fowl. The image is cropped from a DL sized envelope posted to me from Singapore.
