Travel the World of Postage Stamps - Song Birds - White-browed Tit-warbler (Leptopoecile sophiae) - Soviet Union 1981


I want to share my hobby, namely philately, and, together with you, develop it, supplementing and completing each series of postage stamps with another postage stamp.

Today I would like to present the first postage stamp from a series of postage stamps 1, issued in the USSR in 1981, which depicts 2c.

I would not say that the artist depicted the bird very accurately and you will be able to accurately determine the type of bird if you see it in the wild.

Personally, I have not met this bird, perhaps you are more fortunate.

The beginning of our hobby has been laid, tomorrow we will see another postage stamp from this series.

If you also collect postage stamps, share your impressions in the comments.
