Migratory Birds - 1997 Complete Mint Set of 4

Issued only two months before the administration of Hong Kong was returned to China, this is the next to last commemorative set issued under British rule. Although it is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, over 530 species of birds are found in Hong Kong, and is a popular stopover point for migratory birds. This colorful set of 4 pictures some of the many migratory birds that pass through as the seasons change. (Hong Kong #784-87)
