High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Vampire Finch
(Geospiza difficilis septentrionalis) is a small bird native to the
Galapagos Islands. It is a very distinct subspecies of the
Sharp-beaked Ground Finch (Geospiza difficilis) endemic to Wolf and
Darwin Islands (Grant et al. 2000). The vampire finch is sexually
dimorphic as typical for its genus, with the males being primarily
black and the females grey with brown streaks. It has the largest
and most pointed beak of all G. difficilis subspecies, and overall
looks like a miniature Common Cactus-Finch rather than, as the
other subspecies do, a large Small Ground-Finch with a straight
bill (Schluter & Grant 1984). It has a lilting song on Wolf, a
buzzing song on Darwin, and whistling calls on both islands; only
on Wolf, a drawn-out, buzzing call is also uttered.(Grant et al.
