#1262 Suriname 19/02/07

Here is a beautiful cover from Suriname. It was posted in Paramaribo on February 7, 2019.

The stamps depict the map tree frog (Hypsiboas geographicus), the bare-faced curassow (Crax fasciolata), the aplomado falcon (Falco femoralis), the long-nosed horned frog (Megophrys nasuta), and the short-tailed hawk (Buteo brachyurus).


#373 Suriname 10/07/??

Sherwin sent me this postcard from his hometown Paramaribo in Suriname, thank you!

The stamp depicts the Caica Parrot (Pyrilia caica; in Dutch: “Zwartkappapegaai” as written on the stamp). The stamp was not cancelled but overprinted with the label “Port Payé” (Postage Paid).
