Birds are man's good friend. From the two snow-covered poles to the roof of the world, from roaring seas to dense forests, and from bare deserts to bustling cities, various colorful birds have infused fresh vigor to nature and human life. A component of the ecosystems, birds play an important role in keeping the ecological balance. Of the 9,000 species of birds on earth, 1,200 can be found in China, and 100 are peculiar to the country. The six birds on the stamps are among the said 100 species, with high ornamental and economic values.

There are official FDCs which I sent to my Malaysia friend on issue day.This is a self-made minisheet FDC which was made by myself.
