I received a newsletter from SAPO by email but was disappointed that there were no bird stamps mentioned. I replied and suggested that SAPO could continue its recent series of bird stamps by selecting 5 South African Woodpeckers perhaps in the programme for 2020. I was very surprised to get a reply from a SAPO official that there would be an issue featuring Woodpeckers in August, 2019! I have requested early news of this issue. August 2019 Reminder SAPO

Georgia Europa: single featuring Ring-necked Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus).
Update Georgia Post has published in Georgian a page featuring this stamp. The Google translation of this page makes no mention of a second stamp, but perhaps this page was put together hastily to get the stamp included in the PostEurop competition. The date on the page (May 16) might refer to the intended issue date, but I have not seen any sales of this stamp.

Guyana Wildlife of South America: A souvenir seet of 6 stamps featuring several birds, including Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus), Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus), Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco), Greater Rhea (Rhea americana) and possible Red-legged Tinamou (Crypturellus erythropus) disappearing off the stamp...
There are at least 2 species of Passerines between the Toucan and Macaw which may be seen on this version of the source image. This image has a key to the animals' names in German from which I think that the bird labelled "9" is Tufted Coquette (Lophornis ornatus) and "8" is a Tanager, possibly Swallow Tanager (Tersina viridis).

Malta The Programme for 2019 includes Europa Birds, 2 stamps (€2 and 59c), but with no further details.
Update: Malta Post has published details of this issue, which shows that both stamps show different views of the same Blue Rock-Thrush (Monticola solitarius) on the same branch. I suspect the decision to feature Malta's National Bird was taken before the clarification was made that countries could display any indigenous birds.
