The most beautiful issues of Latin American postal stamps with the theme Birds (1st part).

Today I intend to continue (and to begin so to speak) commenting on one of the most beautiful aspects in the collection of postage stamps: the themes, that is, the themes towards which one intends to direct his passion.

In my particular case I have devoted myself predominantly to the Fauna and Flora theme.

And from today, criticism and comments allowing, I will begin to tell you the most salient aspects of this collection starting with the theme Birds and a special chapter dedicated to our beloved Latin America.
The Andean condor is threatened on the continental level, particularly in northern Bolivia.

The most beautiful issues of Latin American postal stamps with the theme Birds (1st part).

The different postal administrations make no difference regarding the sovereignty of the countries and the stamps are issued in their capacity as such, that is, as the issuing country.

However, I make the difference simply as statistical data, considering that the present series of articles referring to the issues of postage stamps on the subject of Most Beautiful Birds will be done in a strictly alphabetical order.

Sovereign countries.

ARGENTINA - BOLIVIA - Brazil - Chile - Colombia - Costa Rica - Cuba - Ecuador - El Salvador - Guatemala - Haiti - Honduras - Mexico - Nicaragua - Panama - Paraguay - Peru - Dominican Republic - Uruguay - Venezuela -

Dependent territories.

French Guiana - Puerto Rico - Guadalupe - Saint Bartholomew - Saint Martin - Martinique - Quebec - Saint Pierre and Miquelon

With more than 20,000,000 km2, Latin America represents 13.5% of the planet's emerged surface.

Postal issues of birds (predominantly birds) in Argentine philately have been and are still quite frequent, in order to revalue the fauna and protect those threatened species.

The Chaco forest is among the 11 most deforested sites in the world and has the highest levels of degradation.

As soon as the Iberian cappuccino (Sporophila iberaensis) has been discovered, it is already in danger of extinction.

This region faces the sustained loss of its natural and cultural heritage, mainly due to the change in land use for agricultural and forestry production, as well as for real estate businesses, causing serious environmental consequences such as the loss of biodiversity in this country.
The issue of 09/19/2016 consists of four postage stamps on which we observe four different hummingbirds or hummingbirds: Chinstrap Hummingbird, Bronzed Hummingbird, Comet Hummingbird, Common Hummingbird and was dedicated to the centenary of the creation of Argentine Birds (created as a Society Ornitológica del Plata in 191) is an entity dedicated to revaluing the Argentine natural heritage.

Some species, such as the iconic purple macaw (Anodorhynchus glaucus), have risen, according to the latest update of the IUCN Red List, to the category "Possibly Extinct", this position is increasingly bringing it to be considered, formally, extinct on a global scale .

On the other hand, the conservation status of the talking parrot (Amazona aestiva) also changed, from "Least Concern" to "Near Threatened".
Sheet block (09/27/1980) commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Argentine Antarctic presence in the South Orkney (1904-1979) and 150th Anniversary of the creation of the political and military command of the Falkland Islands and the adjacent ones of the Cape Horn in the Atlantic Ocean (1929-1979).


No more than 250 specimens have been found of the blue-bearded beard and the stone-crested paujil in all of Bolivia.

Bolivia has become the fifth richest country with bird species in the world and the richest country on the planet without access to the sea.

This is mainly due to its location and geographic extent, which covers many of South America's great habitats.

In this way, in the Bolivian west it is in the corner of the Andes, limited with the Amazon Forest in the north and the Chaco in the south. The only exclusive habitat almost entirely is the Llanos de Moxos.
The protection of biodiversity has always been a constant in Bolivian postal stamp issues.

Bolivia still has large areas with little human-affected habitat and has the potential to protect entire bird communities where human presence is very low.

The main danger for its conservation is the loss of habitat due to degradation, disturbance and destruction of natural ecosystems. In the case of birds, a total of 65 species considered globally threatened have been registered.

The geographical distribution of most of these species is poorly understood, as well as the threats that put them at risk of extinction.
The Bolivian parrot series consists of 8 postage stamps in total and was issued on 05/11/1981.


In the list of countries those whose name is highlighted in bold and capital letters actually correspond to those that are treated in this article since, due to their length, I will develop the topic in several posts.

The images that do not have a specific link are part of my collection of postage stamps and, consequently, have been scanned with an old Lexmark Multifunction X1270 -excuse the poor resolution-
