Description

The BSON_TYPE_TIMESTAMP type is not a date/time and is typically used for intra‐server communication.

You probably want bson_iter_date_time(3)

The bson_iter_timestamp(3) function shall return the contents of a BSON_TYPE_TIMESTAMP element. It is invalid to call this function while observing an element that is not of type BSON_TYPE_TIMESTAMP.
