In keeping with its traditions, Magyar Posta presents the characteristic fauna of Hungary each year on a stamp block and set of stamps. On the new stamps for 2012 birds of prey are depicted, which in order of ascending face value are the imperial eagle, the white-tailed eagle, the red-footed falcon and the saker falcon, and in the background there are motifs indicating their habitats.

The stamp series was designed by the graphic artist Kalman Szekely and 300,000 copies were made by the state printing company Allami Nyomda.

The stamp block associated with the series presents the bird of the year 2012, the Common Buzzard, and is due to be issued on 15 June 2012.
