Seeing the First Day of Issue date for the new Birds In Winter Forever Stamps has caught my attention. They go on sale beginning September 22nd which is the first day of WordCamp Wilmington 2018!
“The stamp art highlights the handsome plumage of resident birds often spotted throughout the year‘s coldest months.”
“The Birds in Winter stamps celebrate four of winter‘s winged beauties:
- The black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus),
- The northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis),
- The blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata), and
- The red-bellied woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus).”
It will be easy remembering this date; the ideas for sending off for envelope cachet for this has me already getting out my sketchbook. For details on ordering the First-Day-of-Issue Postmark and/or ordering First-Day Covers click here. It was just July last year when we were looking at the Songbirds in Snow Forever Stamps (7-26-2016).
As we wrap up, it is fun seeing today is daily blog post #1,275! The next three and a half weeks are going to fly by to #1300! More to follow.
