After the beautiful dove covers from Fiji, today I received another beautiful dove stamps cover but sent from Philippines, which sent by Myron, thank you his great job of this mail. Those birds, mostly are endemic to Philippines, or only can be found in south-west Pacific area, such as Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia or Oceania countries.

Philippines issued a set of definitive stamps feature more than 25 beautiful birds from 2007, the block of ten is one of them. Beside of this se-tangent block, this cover also franked with other two definitive stamps. However, little bit disappointed thing is the printing quality is not good enough.
