Neither a sparrow nor a flycatcher, but it's of the same order (obviously). The name includes that of a scientist.

Then I'll have to guess Audubon's Oriole, although if that's right it must be a juvenile as, except for the wing markings, it doesn't look much like the adult.

You mean a hint? It lives only on a smallish group of islands near the equator.

Oh man. Does that mean we have to go through Darwin's list of finches until we hit on the right one?

Nope, Darwin's Finch or Galapagos Finch was what I was looking for. I knew that hint was a bit too good :)

Just in the interest of ornithological correctness...

Having a couple of weeks on the Galapagos Islands -- in the company of a naturalist and a biologist -- I was a little skeptical about this bird being one of Darwin's Finches. Although there is a lot of variation amongst the 14 birds in the family "Darwin's Finch", all are either brown or black. A quick google search and I found the image's location here. I'm guessing this person, John Oswalt, was there as a tourist. He likely mis-identified the bird or was mis-informed by his guide. I believe that bird may be a yellow warbler, also very common to the Galapagos.

I'm not contesting the results of this game: one, meh, what does it matter; and two, the website BeefontheBone consulted identified it as a Darwin Finch. I just didn't want anyone to go around thinking Darwn's Finches come in yellow. I mean, imagine the catastrophes that could happen. ;)

I think that's a Ground Squirrel. If I need to be more specific, I'd guess a California Ground Squirrel.

According to the page where I stole the picture, it's a Barbary ground squirrel, but I wouldn't know the difference if they all came to bite me in the nose. Do go on, noma.

feh, Barbary, California.... a ground squirrel by any other name... but it sure ain't a chipmunk.

Here's another easy one, at least with this clue: the world's only equatorial penguin. For a bonus point, identify the crab just behind and to the right of the penguin.

Hmm... guess we're all too busy with TCB. But it's easy points here...

A penguin... living on the equator...

One word. Google.

(Remember the bonus point: identify that orange crab that lives there too.)

True - a quick google gave me the Galapagos Penguin.

And I'll hazard that the crab is the Sally Lightfoot Crab.

Yep. I figured anyone from NZ would be able to pick it on sight.

I still vividly remember trying to take a photo of one while on holiday there. I put down my walking stick to take the picture, so naturally he started to drag it away...

Nope, he's not a Siamese. Although his markings are similar, he has longer hair.

I'd have to go with a Himalayan. (As BOTB pointed out, an evil red-eyed demonic Himalayan.)
