Those three stamps feature with one souvenir sheet presented by Malaysia Post last month, they are as beautiful as past issues. However the souvenir sheet omitted its country name 'Malaysia' and post office has been suspended to sell it. This nice first day cover, was sent by Mrs. Hashim, thanks for her great mail.

All of them are be protected by law nowadays as classified as Least Concern to Vulnerable. Malayan Peacock-Pheasant now only confined in Malaysia Peninsular. Malayan Whistling-Thrush can be found at Banjzaran Titiwangsa and Milky Stork can be found in Cambodia, Malaysia Peninsular and islands around Indonesia.
