Four new self-adhesive definitive stamps are being issued with the first stamp issue in 2021: "Crossbill" (face value: CHF 0.85), "Citril Finch" (CHF 1.00), "Wallcreeper" (CHF 1.50) and "Red-backed Shrike" (CHF 2.00) are colourful songbirds native to Liechtenstein.

Coniferous forests up to a maximum of 1,800 m above sea level provide a home for the crossbill. With its strong beak and predominantly red plumage, the forest bird finds food where spruces and dwarf mountain pines grow. The Ruggeller Riet nature reserve with its bedding meadows and bushes is home to the red-backed shrike, which can be recognised by its grey head and a typical shrike black stripe through the eye. Its back is rust coloured and its tail black and white.

The wallcreeper, on the other hand, adapts perfectly to its habitat in rock faces as its upper parts are grey. The round, red and black wings with white dots are visible only when the bird is in flight. In Liechtenstein its range extends from the edge of the valley to the alpine region. The citril finch can also be found in the mountains. Light coniferous trees at the edge of forests are the confined habitat of the songbird with its striking yellow-green plumage.
