No Picture Available

On May 16, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues ten new stamps featuring Birds of the World: the third issue in a series. The Caribbean Flamingo has a raucous and resounding cry. The Dalmatian Pelican has a large, grayish-white body, and long, black-tipped wings. The Piping Plover is named for its incessant call. The Coscoroba Swan has white plumage with black on the outer feathers. The state bird of Hawaii, the Hawaiian Goose is characterized by its barred neck, checkered chest and black cap. The Brown Pelican is a large coastal bird that weighs eight pounds and has a seven-foot wingspan. The Jabiru is a sizable waterbird distinguished by its white wings and tail, and its black head and legs. Despite its clumsy gait, the King Penguin is ideally adapted to life in the subantarctic. The White Spoonbill is a long-legged wading bird with a long neck and unique spoon-shaped bill. The Stanley Crane's diet consists primarily of vegetation.
