Description
According to the practice of periodically replacing definitive postage stamps, the 90 won postage stamp featuring a scops owl, issued on April 22, 1994, will be replaced by a stamp featuring a great tit (Parus major), starting from June 5, 2006

As the nation's representative indigenous bird, the great tit can be found all across Korea including Jeju Island and Ulleung Island. About 14.5cm tall, it has a black head and neck, with a white cheek. It sports a black, neck tie-shaped, vertical band on its belly. During the breeding period, the female and male live together, while in the winter, they roam in the forest along with coletits, marsh tits, long-tailed tits, among others. It breeds twice a year, the breeding period lasting from April to July. It lays 4~13 eggs at a time, which have a white background with tiny red/brown spots. It is a useful bird that feeds on vermin that harm crops and the forest. Its favorite foods include insects, arachnid, seeds of plants, etc.
