She also wears a short, dark-gray, circular skirt with black leggings and shoes.
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 grayish-brown, with white and yellowish underparts that allows it to blend in with its surroundings very well. As its name implies, it differs from the Large Tree Finch (C. psittacula) mainly in its substantially smaller and less parrot-like bill, and from the Small Tree Finch (C. parvulus) in larger bill.
The Medium Tree Finch lives in forested habitats such as evergreen forest, tropical deciduous forest, and humid scrub, feeding on insects, nectar, young buds and leaves. Living in a remote island, the Medium Tree Finch is uncommon, very local, and suffering a rapid decline. Its small range of 23 km² on Floreana Island suffers extensive habitat destruction due to agriculture expansion, alteration by invasive plant species, introduced predators and the parasitic fly Philornis downsi, which causes large decreases in nesting success.
Its largest population can be found where its preferred nesting tree, Scalesia pedunculata, is dominant, with males building a typical spherical nest where the females can lay up to 4 whitish eggs that she incubates alone during 12 days. The chicks fledge 13-16 days after hatching.
- 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.
