Buffalos has 4 stamps with one having Oxpeckers on its back. The same animal seems to be in the border of the souvenir sheet. The image of the same Buffalo was used on a stamp issued for Guinea-Bissau in 2008 and I list the Oxpeckers as Yellow-billed, on range. The only Oxpecker listed for Ivory Coast is Yellow-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus), but the designer may have found a photograph with Red-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus erythrorhynchus). It would be useful to find the source photograph.
Update: Endangered Species has 4 stamps with one featuring White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus).

The souvenir sheet has Blue-and-yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna).

Some of these birds occur in Uganda! I have corrected some naming errors but several photographs need checking to ensure the names on the stamps are correct. This could be the final straw for some collectors...

Jordan Migratory Birds: 8 stamps featuring Grey Crowned-Crane (Balearica regulorum), Great White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus), Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), Collared Flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis), probable Steppe Buzzard (Buteo buteo vulpinus), Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla), European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster) and Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus). I am guessing that the designer intended to show the migratory Common Crane (Grus grus), but chose a "pretty" crane instead. The image and date of issue were sent to me by a correspondent but originated from Jordan Post. The name of the bird of prey is given as Arabic name on the bird of prey stamp. The Arabic name of the bird on this page seems very similar. 9 February 2014 Tick Correspondent
