Songbirds of the Greek Countryside

Greece
Compared to other European countries, Greece has a particularly rich birdlife. The most populous group are the Passeriformes with a total of 179 species. The best known of those are the bird species known as songbirds. The commemorative series of stamps ‘Song Birds of the Greek Countryside’ is dedicated to 5 of these sweet-sounding birds that everyone is bound to have come across and felt enchanted by their melodic song. The 5 species of songbirds this commemorative series of stamps captures are the cinnamon-coloured nightingale with its warbling song, the small-bodied common linnet with its whistle-like song, the well-known and impressive European goldfinch with its characteristic chirps, the yellow and black Eurasian siskin with its warbling melody and the European greenfinch with its elaborate and long-drawn out song,
