Woodpecker Finch
Camarhynchus pallidus
The Woodpecker Finch (Camarhynchus pallidus) is one of the famous "Darwin Finches" which are endemic to the Galapagos Islands. This species is especially well-known since it has been observed using a tool, such as a twig, to get at grubs or other invertebrates through a hole or crack in a tree limb. The Woodpecker Finch shown here was in the highlands above Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz.
