Detailed image of the bird

A correspondent from Germany has suggested that the identity of the bird on this stamp is Rufous-vented Laughingthrush (Garrulax gularis) which is found in Bhutan. The suggestion is probably correct, but the drawing of the bird on the stamp is not very realistic: it does not even have a rufous vent! However, as it is the only known image of this species on stamps, I will include it on my next update.
