This Green Woodpecker is a very bright and perky-looking character, and emits that wonderful, characteristic and rather manic-sounding "yaffle" call (two in succession in fact) when the correct spot on its lower back is pressed - never fails to raise a smile.
I now have several of these Wild Republic birds - they are very good quality - soft plush fabric, and well-made. I think they are suitable for almost any age, from 3 to 103! Children will love them, because they are fun, cute and cuddly - whilst also learning to appreciate nature and recognise the various bird songs - and I even bought one for my 80-year old mother, and she is delighted with it too!
The calls incorporated in the birds' 'voice boxes' are all totally authentic recordings, and have been produced at CEBA, Centre Bioacoustique Alpin, in France. I sometimes go and set all of mine off one after the other in an idle moment, as do any visitors... Great fun, good quality and highly recommended.
N.B. I have however bought one or two that were reduced to half price or less and the ones I received were a little 'wonky', e.g. one eye noticeably higher than the other - etc - so I recommend paying around full price for them, especially if they are to be a gift.
