Thank you Clearecne selected four nice Maldives' bird stamps for me, they come from three different stamp sets issued on 1990 to 2007, four seabirds are very common to be find in Indian Ocean and they are not endangered species. Audubon's Shearwater to be found in topical islands over the world, range from West Indies, mid to east Pacific, Indian Ocean and St Helena. Cinnamon Bittern and Koel are very common to be found in southern Asia, Indian Ocean and shores of west Pacific Ocean, they breed in north and migrate to south for summer. Black-headed Gull lives in Eurasia , east from Great Britain to west of Japan, it also migrates to south like sub-Sahara, India, south-east Asia for winter.
