Thanks for the correction Peter!

Great shot, but I don't think this is C. psittacula. C.psittacula has a really curved upper mandible and the male never turns entirely black. I'd determine these two as "Ground Finch - Geospiza sp." The little one on the left looks like G. fuliginosa and the male like G. fortis.
