At this time of year in the Galapagos, it is raining, plants are flowering, and endemic insects are everywhere. This is a great time for terrestrial animals to breed. During our visit, we enjoyed listening to chirping Darwin’s finches and mockingbirds.

Seabirds are just starting to perform pre-mating rituals. In a few months, they will have chicks. The ocean will cool down a bit and provide plenty of food for marine animals.

This is a good time of year to explore the Galapagos. Visitors can observe native and endemic animals take advantage of the good conditions while marine animals prepare to give birth.
