Large Ground-finches

Darwin's Finches

The Large Ground-finch (Geospiza magnirostris) is endemic to the Galapagos Islands - a group of volcanic islands distributed around the equator in the Pacific Ocean, 972 km west of continental Ecuador, where they inhabit subtropical or tropical dry forests and shrubland. This large ground finch beak can crack hard shells with its strong bill.
