Great tit is green and yellow with a striking glossy black head with white cheeks and a distinctive two-syllable song.

StampNews.com is glad to introduce a new stamp by Estonian Post that depicts this great bright and original bird that gained the status of the bird of the year! Let's appreciate this item together.

The great tit depicted on a new stamp is known to everyone by its black longitudinal strip as well as the black head and a big white cheek blot. In Estonia it is a usual brooding bird who lives in various woodlands forests, parks, gardens. It builds its nest usually in tree hollows or nest boxes.

If in summer the main food are insects and their larvae, then in winter it eats various seeds. In winter the great tit is a guest in various feeding houses ‒ sunflower seeds and fat taste particularly well to it. The Estonian Ornithology Society elects the bird of the year since 1995.
