The Galapagos Islands.

Few places in the world conjure up as much intrigue, excitement, and awe. Could the land of volcanoes, giant tortoises, Marine Iguanas and Darwin (or so we have been told) possibly be as legendary as our wildest dreams have imagined? Not surprisingly,, it far exceeded them! And we haven’t even mentioned the birding yet-from flamingos and penguins, to Blue-footed Boobies and Frigatebirds. From Swallow-tailed Gulls to rails and a finch that uses tools, the birding was unreal. Join us as we get to know all of the feathered (and non) species that call these islands their only home, especially the “Darwin’s Finches,” a group of 16 birds that are the perfect example of evolution via “adaptive radiation.” Refreshments.
