If we talk about what the Soviet Union could really be proud of, it was the size and variety of animals and plants on its territory.

Numerous series of postage stamps made it possible to see animals that you would never have seen in the wild, due to the large distances between biotopes.

On the second, postage stamp from the Song Birds series, issued in the USSR in 1981, we see the beautiful bird Amur Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone incei.

Having lived all my life on the territory of the former USSR, I have never seen this bird, which lives in the regions bordering China and Mongolia, too far from the once western borders of the USSR.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.
