This cactus-loving Galápagos finch has an especially distinctive bill, which is long, deep at the base, and often appears droopy. Bill is black on breeding male and dull orange on female and nonbreeding male. Male’s plumage is sooty-black; female is dark brown with paler underparts that are blotched with gray. Most prevalent in arid coastal areas, where it is often seen feeding on prickly pear flowers. Found on most islands, but absent from Española, Genovesa, Santiago, and Fernandina.
