The Bateleur is a common bird of prey of sub-Saharan Africa.

One of my main aims is to collect at least one stamp depicting each of the birds listed in Roberts Birds of Southern Africa. 
 Roberts was first published in 1940 and the Seventh edition is currently in preparation. 

At present I have collected 610 of the SA birds that have appeared on a stamp.
 It is likely that some of the less flamboyant birds such as larks and warblers might never appear on a stamp,
 but the aim to collect as many as possible lends itself to an interesting collection.  

The pages that follow are in Roberts 6 order, and show an example of each bird found in Southern Africa, 
where I have the stamp.  The number of different birds appearing below currently stands at 610.  
Click on the stamp for an enlarged image, and then use the "Back" button to return to the page.

Included in the tables are the local name, the scientific name and the status of the bird
