dd 4.1 wants new animals for her imaginative play so asked me about desert birds. I suggested we google some and up came a gila woodpecker. Baring in mind we live in NZ which does not have any form of woodpecker and they are not part of our popular culture, I thought I had an excellent opportunity to teach her something new. I called her over and said look honey here's a new bird for you, oh yes she says, that's a gila woodpecker, I can tell because he is on a cactus and has a red patch on his head. right...... I'm blaming Diego for this
