These finches were collected from the Galápagos Islands in 1835 by Charles Darwin and his colleagues during the second voyage of HMS Beagle (1831-1836) and are now part of the Natural History Museum's collections. The different finch species on the islands are closely related to each other, but show wide variations in beak and body size and feeding behaviour.
