Bird Stamps

_165009This is so cool!

Today, I was beginning a book called To See Every Bird on Earth by Dan Koeppel. It’s a biography of Richard Koeppel: his father, a medical doctor and a Big Lister, a man who saw more than 7,000 birds in his life time. Perhaps only Phoebe Snetsinger, who saw nearly 8,500 bird species, saw more.

Koeppel mentions Chris Gibbins, who has collected bird stamps since 1970. He has more than 12,140 of these showing 2,950 different species, and he has made them available online. Want to see the bird stamps of America? Look!

Or Uganda? Or Nicaragua? Or the Philippines?

How beautiful are the birds of the world that God has made and man has captured in art!
