Portrait of a Mimid

from 2.00

Hood Mockingbird, Mimus macdonaldi. While less well known than Charles Darwin’s finches of the Galápagos, it was actually the four mockingbird species Darwin found on the island chain that sparked the idea for his infamous Origin of Species. The Hood Mockingbird is found only on the island of Española, a tiny piece of land less than 25 square miles that receives only sparse inches of rain per year. Any species that lives solely on an island is in peril, as the threat of weather events or exotic species introduced to its island could change their habitat with drastic consequences. With the careful conservation management and protection of the Ecuadorian government, the Hood Mockingbird continues to thrive on Española.
