Another term for Darwin's finches.
- The great evolutionary plasticity of bill form and function is well known from the radiations of Hawaiian honeycreepers and Galapagos finches.
- Darwin's study of characteristics of species on isolated islands such as these Galapagos finches, and of fossil animals, led him to conclude that evolution had occurred.
- In fact, the opposite may be happening, as several species of Galapagos finches now appear to be merging through hybridization.
