Myanmar Endemic Bird Species Series

Between 2022 and 2023, Myanmar Post issued a stamp series showcasing endemic bird species native to Myanmar. This collection comprises a total of nine beautifully designed stamps. 

Each stamp presents the bird's name in Burmese, its corresponding English name, scientific name, and the date of issue. Below are the details for each stamp in the series:
