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!
