    My four-year-old granddaughter is in pre-k, and a couple of weeks ago, she comes home and wanted to talk about this new bird they learn about in class. She asked my wife if she knew what a wood-decker was, my wife asks what’s a wood-decker? (my granddaughter has a bit of a problem saying some words) -anyway, I’m sure you get the idea- and my granddaughter says you know, “it’s the bird that hits his face against a tree.”
