Odd stamps : 08 Stamps with special cuts - 01 j

What's the best way to post an Easter article...
with eggs of course.

In this series of 'round' stamps, I also included some oval stamps before.
Since 'eggs' tend to be more oval, the following two sheets deal with oval stamps.

Let me situate the origin of the stamps.
They come from a tiny island 'Bequia'.
To find it, we go to the Caribbean :

We zoom in into Saint Vincent and Grenada islands :

The island below Saint Vincent is Bequia Island.
It's not really a country, but part of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
This island emits its own stamps.
The stamps are good quality, but as there are less then 10,000 people living on the Islands, and Saint Vincent issues its own stamps, it's an emission that can be discussed.

However, the article of today is about the odd stamps :

sheet 1 :

Full sheet - 3 eggs
3 eggs - Bequia
Egg n° 1 : Ruff
Egg n° 2 : Spotted Sandpiper
Egg n° 3 : Sharp-Shinned Hawk

sheet 2 :

Full sheet - 1 egg
1 egg - Bequia
Egg of Great Crested Flycatcher

Happy Easter
