Caption: Darwin finch. Artwork of the medium ground finch (Geospiza fortis). The Darwin finches were collected by the British naturalist Charles Darwin when the survey ship HMS Beagle visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835. The differences between birds from different islands prompted Darwin's work on his theory of evolution. This artwork is from 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle', edited by Darwin and published in 19 issues between 1838 and 1843. This is plate 38 from the 'Birds' section (Part 3), appearing in 1839 in the 4th number of that section.
