Great Tit

Great Tit (大山雀)
Spain (2009)
12th November, 2009. Barcelona

Thanks David sent me this nice mail from Barcelona which franked with three same domestic bird stamps issued on 2009, same as recent bird issues, it comes from self-adhesive booklet. Great Tit is a common songbird to be found in most Eurasian countries and Morocco, it mostly lives in mountain and flatland.forest. In summer it residents in high mountain area but will migrate to lowland in winter. Although the bird does not list as endangered species, it faces illegal trading in China as it is famous pet bird in this country.

Beside of above cover, Switzerland and Estonia also issued a Great Tit stamp on 2007 and 2003 respectively. A maxicard was shown in here on February.
