In Real Life
The Medium Tree-Finch is endemic to the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador, in the Floreana Island. This is a small bird of around 12.5 cm in size, its color is mostly greyish-brown, with white and yellowish underparts that allows it to blend in with its surroundings. As its name implies it differs from Large Tree-finch (C. psittacula) mainly in having a smaller and less parrot-like bill, and from Small Tree-finch (C. parvulus) in having a larger one.
The Medium Tree-Finch lives in forested habitats such as evergreen forest, tropical deciduous forest, and humid scrub, usually found where they preferred nesting tree, Scalesia pedunculata, is dominant. They can be seen on the mainland and sometimes near the coast, but they are uncommon and very local to this island. They feed on insects, nectar, young buds and leaves, searching in the fissures of trees using their specialized beak, but they can also search under leaves and branches. This species is suffering a rapid decline, due to habitat destruction, alteration by invasive plant species, introduced predator and the parasitic fly Philornis downsi, which causes large decreases in the nesting success of the birds.
- Part of the "Darwin's Finches", also known as Galapagos Finches, those finches are considered one of the world’s fastest-evolving vertebrates, whose appearance and behavior had adapted to fill different niches on the changing environment of the Galápagos Islands.
