And after setting the theme to be Irish stamps, green stamps, etc., I find I don't HAVE any stamps from Ireland!
This Stork -billed Kingfisher will have to do.
A stamp from Singapore, which came to me on a Postcrossing Postcard. From Wikipedia: "The Stork-billed Kingfisher, Pelargopsis capensis (formerly Halcyon capensis), is a tree kingfisher which is widely but sparsely distributed in tropical south Asia from India and Sri Lanka to Indonesia. This kingfisher is essentially resident throughout its range. This is a very large kingfisher, 35 cm in length. The adult has a green back, blue wings and tail, and grey head. Its underparts and neck are buff. The very large bill and legs are bright red. The flight of the Stork-billed Kingfisher is laboured and flapping, but direct."
They are not common, but not considered endangered.
Theme next week: Spring!!! If you are in the Antipodes: Fall!!!
