The post of Antigua & Barbuda always selected different birds which can or not to be found in its country, perhaps it is because the stamp issue policy controlled by IPGS and this is a quite shame dealer in the world. Above stamps still under controlled by IGPS but acceptable when the species are endemic to Caribbean area. Red-billed Streamertail is a beautiful greenish bird, another name is doctor bird. However it is endemic to Jamaica not Antigua. Yellow-bellied Sapsucker is a woodpecker to be found in North America, Central America and Caribbean, it probably also lives in Antigua. Spectacled Owl is a common owl lives in the range of southern Mexico, Trinidad to Argentina. It's eyes specially in black colour similar to wearing glasses. Rufous-tailed Jacamar lives in whole America except Canada and United States ; and also not to be found in Caribbean.

Four species are not endangered species to this area, they are commonly to be found in variety countries.
