We started the day by seeing one of the things I wanted to see, a Woodpecker Finch. We were all so excited to see this little bird peck a little hole in the tree branch and then dig something out of the hole. We then went to the tortoise reserve were the tortoises were mating (what a sight), then some of our group decided they wanted to be a tortoise and crawled into the shell at the reserve, what fun. Then to the Darwin Center to see Lonesome George who was also mating which is means hope for him as he forms a new subspecies.
