This set of 12 stamps is a great disappointment.  The stamps are small, 20mm by 24mm, and mostly show birds of the Caribbean region.  However, two show species found in South East Asia, the 75c and $1.60.  As far as I can discover, only two of the stamps show a species which has occurred in Grenada and both only as vagrants: the 50c Black-necked Stilt which has appeared previously on a Grenada stamp, while the $1 shows the Blackburnian Warbler.
