The Galapagos mockingbird. There are four species of mockingbirds on the islands, one on Espanola, one on San Cristobal, one on two islets off Floreana and the other on all major islands except Pinzon and Floreana. They are extremely curious and will often come hopping down the beach to investigate a new landing party. The mockingbirds are omnivorous but show strong predator tendencies, especially those on Espanola. All of them have brown/grey colouration, with long tails and legs and an upright stance. They have long, thin bills, particularly the species on Espanola, which has a dagger-like bill. (Taken from: Galapagos Wildlife, a visitor's guide)
