Yes, thanks for spotting this, Tom! This defintely is the Galapagos Mockingbird, Mimus parvulus. Note that in the first spotting Tsanka also caught a Darwin's Finch, a Large Groundfinch, Geospiza magnirostris.
I don't think this is a Stout-billed Cinclodes, they are high altitude birds. It looks like a mockingbird to me. Maybe one of these. http://birdingblogs.com/2010/richhoyer/t...
This must have been taken on a visitor path in the Galapagos National Park
This needs a caption for sure! Funny image.
Not sure if this is a kind of a Cinclodes, you can see here: http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/ovenbirds Maybe the stout billed: http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/962132... ?
