Tonga: Definitives 2012

Set of 12

Tonga issued this set of 12 stamps on February 6th, 2012 featuring various birds found on the islands. There was one very obvious error on the $3 stamp: the bird labelled as Megapodius pritchardii was clearly a Grey-necked Wood-Rail (Aramides cajanea). Here are comparative photographs of the two species:
