Mimus parvulus

Instead of flying, the Galapagos mockingbird is often seen running along the ground. It has a varied omnivorous diet comprising arthropods, fruit, nectar from cacti and other plants, small vertebrates, sea bird eggs and nestlings, and carrion. In addition, this species will remove ticks from the bodies of land iguanas, and populations on Santa Fe Island are known to occasionally drink blood from the wounds of living land and marine iguanas.
