Malaysia has continued its fine series of bird stamps over the years with this excellent set. The Whistling-Thrush is new for my collection. The main talking-point about this set is the omission of "Malaysia" from the stamp on the souvenir sheet. The sheet was shown with the name as intended, so I wonder if there will be a reprint.

These stamps will be added to my main collection pages at the end of February.
