Surinam The Provisional Programme for 2022 includes "Birds": but with no further details. However, a Delcampe sale has an image of the sheet
Update: I have received details of this set and list them as follows White-collared Foliage-gleaner (Anabazenops fuscus), Cipo Canastero (Asthenes luizae), White-eyed Foliage-gleaner (Automolus leucophthalmus), White-bearded Antshrike (Biatas nigropectus), Red-billed Scythebill (Campylorhamphus trochilirostris), Rufous Hornero (Furnarius rufus), Narrow-billed Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes angustirostris), Lesser Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus fuscus), Scaled Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes squamatus), Greater Thornbird (Phacellodomus ruber), Rufous-winged Antshrike (Thamnophilus torquatus) and White-throated Woodcreeper (Xiphocolaptes albicollis).
Update The designer has selected the wrong image for White-eyed Foliage-gleaner. The bird shown is much more like Buff-throated Foliage-gleaner (Automolus ochrolaemus) which does occur in Surinam.
Update: 28 June 2022 Correction: This is my detailed scan of the bird on the 12 cent stamp. Using Googles' LENS search produces several similar images, including this one of a White-eyed Foliage-gleaner, which looks remarkably like the bird on the stamp. I suspect these images are taken from a field guide, possibly from Birds of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
