African Grey Parrots are so loved, they’ve even been honored with stamps in many countries! The stamp on the upper left was a 3 cent stamp issued in Cuba in 1967, one of 15 in a collection of birds in the Havana Zoo. The lower right stamp is from Sierra Leone in Africa, issued in 1999. It was also part of a set of 20 stamps entitled ‘Beautiful Parrots and Parakeets of the World.’ I once collected stamps as a kid but quit after my precious collection was water-damaged beyond repair. However, these stamps are really beautiful, and I wish I had them!

My favorite is this stamp from Guinea:
