Trams & Citylights

Hong Kong Trams. For nearly 100 years electric trams have provided reliable public transport along the north of Hong Kong Island. At night they trundle through a blaze of electric signage. Beautiful streerview from Hong Kong. There's a Labrador Retriever in stamp. Thank you Shirley!

Kaunis katukuva Hong Kongista. Hong Kongin rautiovaunut ovat palvelleet jo lähes 100 vuotta.  Postimerkissä komeilee labbis. Kiitos Shirley!

This Chicago-card I got from Rich. The card shows city's skyline at night. Gorgeus stamp, too. Thank you Rich!

Richiltä sain tämän Chicago-kortin, joka näyttää öisen kaupungin. Kaunis on merkkikin. Kiitos Rich!

Bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word

It's Spring and bird migration is currently in progress. Birding is one of my hobbies and it's really rewarding entertainment! I recommend it to everybody :)

Se olis kevät taas ja lintujen muuttokin käynnissä paraikaan. Lintujen bongailu on yksi harrastuksistani ja täytyy kyllä myöntää, että se on ihan äärimmäisen antoisa ajanviete! Kaikille voin suositella lämpimästi :)

Everybody knows this bird, it's White Stork (Ciconia Ciconia). It's the bird which brings babies :) I received the postcard from Elsje from the Netherlands. Here in Finland had been seen some of White Storks, in Helsinki and Siuntio. Thank you Elsje!

Kaikkihan tietävät tämän linnun, kattohaikara! Siis se lintu, joka tuo vauvoja :) Korttihan tuli Hollannista asti Elsjeltä, kiitoksia vaan tästä! Suomessakin on muutamia jo bongailtu mm. Helsingissä ja Siuntiossa.

This postcard I got from Poland. You can see the the Long-eared Owl,
Common Kestrel and Barn Owl
. Great stamp, too :

Tämän korttisen sain Puolasta. Kuvassa näkyy sarvipöllö, tuulihaukka ja tornipöllö. Makia sählypostimerkki kans:

And last but not least:
Viimeisimpänä, mutta ei suinkaan vähäisimpänä:

Poor parrot :(
Raukka pieni papukaija :(

Have you notice the news of baby parrot Nelson? 
Alla on linkki vauvapapukaija Nelsoniin uutiseen...

"He has a face that only a mother could love.
But sadly for poor Nelson, his didn't.
The parrot chick, who must surely be a contender for the ugliest bird in the world, was rejected by his parents after he hatched.
However, he can at least take some comfort in the knowledge that he will one day grow up to be an attractive Kea parrot.
Nelson, who has been described as looking like a cross between an alien and a roast chicken, was born last month at Bergzoo in Germany. 
He was the only one of three eggs laid by his mother to survive and hatch, but was promptly rejected by his parents.
As such, the youngster is now being cared for around the clock by staff and spent the first four weeks of his life in an incubator.
Keas are large parrots native to the alpine regions of New Zealand that are known for their intelligence and curiosity.
Adults are mostly olive-green with a brilliant orange flash under their wings."

Good luck to you baby bird!

And the cute stamp, too.

Today is Good Friday (finnish: Pitkäperjantai). It's also known as Black Friday, Eastern Friday and Holy Friday. The finnish name of the day means Long Friday.

Happy Eastern to everybody!

New Stamps

The Post has released some new stamps and I bought theseones today:

Pictures are from Posti's website.

"The official stamp of the ice hockey world championship 2012 tournament to be organized in Helsinki will portray the widely noted mascot HockeyBird. The stamp is designed by Lead Artist Toni Kysenius of Rovio Entertainment, who has now fulfilled his long-time dream of designing a stamp.
"HockeyBird's job is to bring high-voltage bird energy to the great sporting event and to barge into anything and everything, so it is only natural that he will also take over the stamp," Toni Kysenius says.
Finland and Sweden share the hosting of the ice hockey world championship tournament in 2012 and 2013. Kysenius has taken note of this on his design."  (

This hockey-themed  birdstamp will be released at 21.3.2012
