Canada Animals FDC

Canada FDC
Name: Endangered Species
Date of Issue: 01 October 2008

Denominations:
52c:
Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea)
Named for the yellow vestments of the pope's legal advisor, the Prothonotary Warbler has a golden head and breast, blue-grey wings and a black tail. The few that remain of this species can be seen along Lakes Erie and Huron.

52c: Taylor's Checkerspot (Euphydryas editha taylori)
Found in Canada in a single location on southeastern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the Taylor's Checkerspot owes its name to its colour patterns. these small to medium-sized butterlies are weak flyers that seldom stray far from the plants they eat.

52c: Roseate Tern (Sterna dougallii)
Smaller than a gull, the Roseate Tern is distinguished by its forked tail and black bill and cap. Noted for speed and manoeuvrability, this East Coast bird beats its wings rapidly and calls persistently.

52c: Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia)
The only owl to live in burrows and hunt both day and night, the Burrowing Owl is found in the prairie regions of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Comment: This is my first imperforated self-adhesive stamps FDC, although this is a antitraditional materials. But I think it will be the popular trends, we will see many imperforated self-adhesive stamps in the future.

I agree with you... these will be the future of the stamps. And it will be a great future because the stamps will be cleaner and no perforations to get ruined when the cover circulates. Congrats to Canada!

Best regards
