My Feathered Friends, the Darwin Finches!

There was a wide assortment of Darwin's Finches on the Galapagos Islands.  They are unique, and "endemic" to the Galapagos, as they have adapted over time into various subspecies.

Mom tried to take a variety of pictures of my new feathered friends.

They come in all different colors, and the easiest way to distinguish the different types of Finches is by the size and shape of their beaks.

Their beaks are highly adapted to different food sources....

....and are used for various activities.

This new Finch friend was especially interesting as he had blue feet!

As you may know, birdies are my favorite friends, so I was SUPER excited about these new Finch friends!!

What's next mom?  Are we really still in the Galapagos Islands??

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK here, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

We have been reading back through your Mom's assignment and think all your new friends are wonderful. What outstanding photos she has taken. You should be very proud of her on this assignment.
