In the Forest

This pretty handmade card came from Cynthia in Sabah and it seems to go just right with the fresh green leaves that are, at last, unfurling from the trees in England. Sabah has the three highest mountains in Malaysia and their jungles are tropical rainforests, just the place for the bird on the stamps that came with the card
2005 Birds of Malaysia definitives
The Green Winged Pigeon also known as the Common Emerald Dove.  These little birds feed on fallen fruit and seeds mostly foraging on the ground under tree cover. They are nomadic and follow the fruit season in the lowlands, mountains and forest.
possibly in places like this. Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Sabah whose surroundings are considered one of the most important biological sites in the world with 326 species of birds.
