This set continues the annual series of splendid sets that started in 2001, and adds 3 new species to my collection: Opal-rumped Tanager, Yellow-green Grosbeak and Red-necked Woodpecker. The format is smaller than usual being only 18mm x 22mm. The White-necked Jacobin and Green Oropendola pictures are the same as were used in the Netherlands Antilles set of 2002. The Dusky Parrot image is the same as the one on the Surinam 2002 triangular stamp.

This set brings the total of indigenous species on stamps for this country to 124.
