Georgia Europa: single featuring Ring-necked Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus).
Update Georgia Post has published in Georgian a page featuring this stamp. The Google translation of this page makes no mention of a second stamp, but perhaps this page was put together hastily to get the stamp included in the PostEurop competition. The date on the page (May 16) might refer to the intended issue date, but I have not seen any sales of this stamp.
Update I have been sent this image of the full issue which is apparently now available for purchase, but it has not appeared on Georgia Post's website. The second stamp in the issue features Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus). The same image was used on a 2002 stamp issued with the name "Guinea". A detailed view of the source picture by Gould reveals that the prey is House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), and a second Sparrow is flying away just below the tail of the perched Sparrowhawk.
Update This FDC gives the date.

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).

Malawi "Malawi Wildlife": a mini-sheet of 6 stamps. The Buffalo seems to have at least one Oxpecker on its nose. A better view might reveal whether it is Red-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus erythrorhynchus) or Yellow-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus). Both are possible, but the latter is more likely. Commonwealth Stamps Opinion reported the date of issue as 24 April 2019, but this cover may be showing the intended date, although the stamps all have "2018". Confusingly, I had received an email from Malawi Post early in April informing me that there would be a new issue of " 'endangered animals' on 27 April 2019". The source image confirms that the birds are indeed Yellow-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus). 27 April 2019 Tick Commonwealth Stamps Opinion and Delcampe
