Mimus trifasciatus by Candy McManiman(8 in. x 8 in. | acrylic | ID#3959)
Family: MIMIDAE | Conservation Status: Critically Endangered | Population Trend: stable
The island where it was seen, Champion, is off limits to visitors. We bounces around in the swells hoping against hope to catch a glimpse of the Floreana Mockingbird. A slight shadow under a huge cacti caught our attention and the zodiac circle back. The best was yet to come as the bird slowly revealed itself and then stood on a few rocks in good light. Between the rush of adrenalin and the bouncing zodiac we all got a decent looks and a few photos.
