New
Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet 3: 5 stamps with the one for "G" featuring Galah (Eolophus roseicapillus) and the one for "J" featuring a Jabiru (Jabiru mycteria) - a native of South America! In Australia, the Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) is also known as a "Jabiru", so perhaps the designer chose the wrong bird for the stamp. The image is taken from the online version of Stamp Bulletin 349. 17 October 2017 Thumb down Australia Post.
