Rabida is dominated by the color red. Red beach, red paths, red rocks everywhere.
We hiked up above the beach and had a nice view back down.
Along the way, we got to see the Galapagos dove. It's a pretty bird, with iridescent purple along the side of its neck.
More Darwin finch sightings, and it is today's artist inspiration.
I found the Darwin Finch fascinating. Basically you could look at a finch and tell what kind of food it eats by its shape. A parrot beak? It's a fruit eater. A grasping beak? Insects. A probing beak could mean either insects or cactus eater. A crushing beak identifies a seed eater. There is also a vampire finch! They think it used to eat the ticks off the animals, then transitioned to just picking open the skin and sipping!
We saw some other small creatures, like the hermit crab.
And a snake eating a lava lizard...
We drove by Daphne Island, where we could see boobies nesting in the fading light. It had some interesting lava formations as well.
We saw dolphins from the boat, but I wasn't fast enough with the camera...More photos in the album!
