Kyrgyzstan
Issue date confirmed for Croatia 18 September 2021
The programme for 2021 includes "Joint stamp issue between Kyrgyzstan and Croatia. Protected birds: Woodpeckers", two stamps, but with no further details, but I am hopeful that one of the birds will be White-winged Woodpecker (Dendrocopos leucopterus), and the other should be Middle Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos medius).
Update Images of these two stamps have been published and confirm the two predicted species. The issue date has not been confirmed, and I cannot find a corresponding issue on the Croatia Post website. (It's there now!).
Update 18 September 2021 An email from Kyrgyzstan Post announced delay in publishing this issue: "we are not announcing any new stamps in this email either. Unfortunately, after the recent reorganization, the Ministry of Digital Development has not yet determined the procedure for issuing stamps for Kyrgyz Express Post. Most of all, we regret that we let down our partners from Croatia, who will put into circulation the stamps of our joint issue, on September 22. We will have to do this a little later.

Guyana IGPC has produced an issue about Hummingbirds: consisting of a souvenir sheet which unfortunately features a Southern Double-collared Sunbird (Cinnyris chalybeus), derived from this photograph and a sheetlet of 6 stamps featuring unnamed Hummingbirds derived from photographs found online. Finding the source images is not too difficult thanks to Google's Image Search, but confirming the birds' identities is more problematic, as often the person taking the photograph does not know the identity.
Here's what I think they are together with a link to the source photographs:
Coppery-headed Emerald (Elvira cupreiceps) {source},
Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna) {source},
Broad-billed Hummingbird (Cynanthus latirostris) {source},
Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) {source},
Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) {source} and
Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna) {source}.
