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).
