Stamperija has listed several new sets on various themes. However, there are no birds! I am noting this first release by Stamperija, as I presume they are "officially" approved, and perhaps we can expect a few birds soon...
While checking what else may have been issued in the name of Djibouti, I noticed this item for sale for US$549.00. A block of 4, two of the stamps feature Ostrich (Struthio camelus) and Djibouti Francolin (Francolinus ochropectus), it was apparently printed by "Poste Tunis" in 2012. Who can say if it was officially issued by Djibouti?
