Unidentifiable birds on new stamps from Finland

Finland has issued two stamps commemorating the Posti Art Prize 2020. One of the stamps has silhouettes of two birds perched in a tree. I contacted the designer, Janne Laine, for help in identifying the birds, and here is his response: "Unfortunately I have no idea what the bird was. Actually its the same one with different poses. Photoetching is also unsharpening the bird. And although the stamps are representing the Finnish forest and birdlife, the bird might be photographed in Australia."
