After 4 years, Malaysia issues bird stamps again. This time features 4 woodpeckers, 3 are individual stamps and 1 is in souvenir sheet form, those woodpeckers are local species - at least in whole Malaya Peninsula.

The souvenir sheet was specially printed in embossed process to make the woodpecker looks more reality. However the face value shame in RM5. White-bellied Woodpecker is a migratory bird which breeds in Korea and Japan in winter.
