Whooper Swan

Whooper Swan (大天鵝)
Estonia (2007)
5th April, 2007. Tallinn (first day special postmark)
25th January, 2009. Jõhvi

Although I don't very interested in collect first day cover, sometimes friends are sent me beautiful first day cover after day of issue, I am very happy to receive them as I don't care is it send on the first day or not. For me, I feel trouble to send first day cover in Hongkong as too much rules of post office should be followed, some staffs do not like serve collector as they think collectors have too much demand.

Above cover was sent by Kristiina, thank you very much of her surprise ! It is very nice cover. Estonia issues a bird stamp in each year, Whooper Swan was issued on 2007. The bird mostly lives in most-north of the world and flies to mid-Asia, whole Europe or Africa, most people confuse the bird and Tundra Swan (小天鵝) as they look similar. Cover shown the different of male and female birds, female with reddish bill and male is yellow and black.
