From the "Fauna in Kosova" brochure of the Kosovo post...besides the fact that the pigeon and cow feature prominently among the fauna of Kosovo (I am all in favor of giving space to the less 'fancy' animals) there are some other gems here:
Duck: "Lives in Albanian lands, in Kosova and Albania." If we define Albanian lands by the habitat of ducks, count Canterbury in (and a few other places). Hhmm, by the way note that the stamp on the left pictures the famous swan-duck of Kosova.
Dog of Sharr: "a very old type of dog, extremely clean and faithful. Dog of Sharr is a native race of dogs in the Sharr region." Let's not forget the other side of the mountains in Macedonia, please.
The Cow: "Busha is a typical Kosovar cow and is one of the oldest races. This cow is very milkweed..." ok, enough of the my cow is an older race than yours game, but how can a cow be milkweed?
