    Darwin's Living Legacy--Evolutionary Theory 150 Years Later: Scientific American
    When the 26-year-old Charles Darwin sailed into the Galápagos Islands in 1835 onboard the HMS Beagle, he took little notice of a collection of birds that are now intimately associated with his name. The naturalist, in fact, misclassified as grosbeaks some of the birds that are now known as Darwin’s finches. After Darwin returned to England, ornithologist and artist John Gould began to make illustrations of a group of preserved bird specimens brought back in the Beagle’s hold, and the artist recognized them all to be different species of finches.

    If you don't yet have a copy let me recommend that you pick up the recent Evolution Issue of Scientific American, it is outstanding.
