FinnBadger (9)

Great colourful envelope and matching stamps arrived from FinnBadger from the USA.

Inside there were these Bird Blot artistamps:

(for the one horizontal stamp, hereby the same stamps from an other point of view: )

And a pretty postcard showing the Scarlet Tanager, a songbird I never had heard of until now. The funny thing, I learned from Wikipedia, is that this cousin of the Cardinal bird in Dutch isn't named (literally translated) 'Scarlet Tanager', but 'Black-winged Tanager' instead.
Food for thought: the question 'Is the bird red or black?' reminds me of an other issue: ' Is the glass half empty or half full?' :-)

Thank you very much, FinnBadger!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. That's funny, the names. But it is the same regarding to humans: the most important isn't the colour, but the song they sing ;)

    (As scientists say, the glass is always full. Even when it is empty, it is full or air!)

  2. Great to see that the chicken and other birds traveled well, and without a postmark it seems.
