This fine set arrived courtesy of a correspondent in the Netherlands. All of the stamps give the scientific and local name of the bird shown, except for one which uses the English name - Red-bellied Macaw. The four species marked * are new for my collection, and the four marked ~ are new for Surinam. The remaining four are repeats for the country.
