Come 20 January 2012 birders will have reason to be philatelists as well. That’s because the United States Postal Service will be releasing a set of five stamps, illustrated by Robert Giusti, featuring birds of prey. The five lucky birds are Northern Goshawk, Peregrine Falcon, Golden Eagle, Osprey, and Northern Harrier. Check them out below!

Mailing letters just got more interesting!
