|Country||Detail||Date of Issue||Source of information|
|Surinam||I have received by email the Provisional Programme for 2021. It includes "Birds": 12 stamps but with no further details||2 June 2021||Notification from International Philatelic Agencies Ltd.|
|Hong Kong||The 2021 Stamps Issuing Programme includes Centenary of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals: 6 stamps, one featuring Cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus).||21 June 2021||Hong Kong Stamps.|
|Belarus||The programme for 2021 includes "Falcons of Belarus", 6 stamps, but with no further details. There are 6 Falcons listed on Avibase for Belarus, but 2 are Rare/Vagrants, so perhaps there will be 2 each of three species.||July 2021||Belpost|
The programme for 2021 includes "Latvian birds", two stamps, but with no further details.
Update Latvia's bird of the year for 2021 has been chosen, so it is likely that one of the birds in this issue will be Grey Partridge (Perdix perdix).

||The programme for 2021 includes "Joint stamp issue between Kyrgyzstan and Croatia.

||Czechia Post has published some details of future issues in This PDF. I was hoping for a few new birds in this issue: Nature Protection: Milovice, but close examination of the sheet shows that none of the birds is on a stamp, just the Hoopoe's left wing-tip.||8 September 2021||Czechia Post|
