The six birds presented on the cover of this deluxe envelope include both common and exotic varieties with one, a redpoll crossed with a bullfinch, included to illustrate an important aspect of bird fancying, that of creating hybrid cross breeds, both for their appearance and song.

Inside you will unveil insightful information about each of the species of birds featured, along with text titled 'Show Birds on the Isle of Man' by expert Roy Howarth and 'An Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds' by Luke Stephenson, making this a truly informative and fascinating collectors piece for both bird lovers and philatelic collectors alike.
