Caribbean Netherlands Hummingbirds (St. Eustatius): 8 stamps showing artistic illustrations by Michelle Dujardin. St. Eustatius has 3 Hummingbirds listed which are Purple-throated Carib (Eulampis jugularis), Green-throated Carib (Eulampis holosericeus) and Antillean Crested Hummingbird (Orthorhyncus cristatus), all of which may be included, but there are no names on the stamps. I recognise Tufted Coquette (Lophornis ornatus) and Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris).
Update: Checking the artist's web site, I do not think the birds are accurately illustrated. Two of the birds in this issue appear on the page of tropical birds, the Dutch names are give as "Kolibrie blauw groen" and "Kolibrie groen roze", which seem to be describing the colours. I was almost certain that the bottom left stamp had Tufted Coquette (Lophornis ornatus). The tail and back patterns fit well, but the black-tipped orange feathers should be from the cheek and not the crown.
