Icterine Warbler

Icterine Warbler (綠籬鶯)
Latvia (2011)
10th October, 2011. Riga
20th October, 2011. Hong-Kong

Thanks Oleg again, I received the second series of Latvian bird issue just after few days of first issue. Icterine Warbler is the first time appears on the stamp world, it breeds in middle and sub-northern Europe and migrates to sub-Sahara area during winter. Icterine in English means yellowish colour but the Chinese name using green as the description.

It mostly to be found in woodland, also parks and gardens in the city, and near water of course. It is easy to find them in breeding seasons. In the same series, there has another stamp feature Short-toed Snake Eagle (短趾雕).
