Unique Birds

Date of Issue : 21 Jan 2009

30 sen : Malaysian Peacock-Pheasant (Polyplectron malacense)
50 sen : Milky Stork (Mycteria cinerea)
50 sen : Malaysian Whistling Thrush (Myophonus robinsoni)
Miniature Sheet : Wreathed Hornbill (Aceros undulatus) and Plain-Pouched Hornbill (Aceros subruficollis)

A very nice stamp issue, especially the miniature sheet. "Ian's Collection" blog mentioned that there is a big mistake on the stamp of the minature sheet. The stamp of the minature sheet does not bear the name of the country "Malaysia", and thus violating the UPU rule. Pos Malaysia has withdrawn the sale of the minature sheet since 3 February, 2009.
