Here you will see birds on stamps with clear postmarks to show where the birds have flown from. These places have been plotted on the Google map of Traveling Birds. http://goo.gl/JcbeKc .
Click on any bird name beside the map to see the stamps. I hope you enjoy traveling with the birds.

Australia- Song Birds 2009
What a thrill it was to receive the full set of beautiful Australian songbirds 2009 set on cover recently. Clearly postmarked from Ouyen in Victoria. I've seen all these birds in various locations in Australia and know their calls. I am surprised the Green catbird was included as their call is more like a cat with a sore throat than a song. Green Catbird (Ailuroedus crassirostris) Noisy Scrubbird (Atrichornis clamosus) Mangrove Golden Whistler (Pachycephala melanura)
