MEXICO 1996 Wildlife Sheet

This page has been superseded.

This is my attempt to identify the birds on this remarkable sheet. I have been influenced by finding the Spanish names at various web sites, by using Kirby's book on the Birds of Mexico and Central America. Also, I have noted Bruce Cruickshank's contribution to the Bird Stamp Society's Flight 12/1 magazine.
