Caribbean Netherlands Various: stamps featuring Caribbean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) and Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis). The sheet featuring silhouettes of Hummingbirds I will leave as unidentifiable because of the 3 species occurring on Sint-Eustatius only one is crested, so these could be either Purple-throated Carib (Eulampis jugularis) or Green-throated Carib (Eulampis holosericeus). Here is an item on the stamp issuing of this territory. ???? 2014 Thumb down Postbeeld
