With the release of the Coastal Birds postcard stamps, the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates four eye-catching birds: the red knot (Calidris canutus), king eider (Somateria spectabilis), roseate spoonbill (Platalea ajaja), and magnificent frigatebird (Fregata magnificens).
The stamps feature highly stylized, digital portraits of each bird.
Feeding on everything from crustaceans and mollusks to insects and fish, coastal birds can be spotted along beaches, rocky coastlines, and mudflats, as well as in lagoons, wetlands, and other saltwater and freshwater habitats. They account for some of the world’s largest breeding and migratory populations.
The Coastal Birds stamps feature the art of illustrator Tyler Lang. Greg Breeding was the art director.
The word “POSTCARD” on the stamps indicates their usage value. Like a Forever® stamp, it will always be equal in value to the applicable price for the price category printed on them at the time of use. The price and value for this stamp is 34 cents. They are being issued in sheets of 20 and coils of 100 stamps.
