Paintings of four Hawaiian birds illustrating adaptive radiation. This natural history set was inspired by the island chain's finches and honeycreepers, who are thought to have originated from a common finch-like ancestor, and evolved into various species occupying different ecological niches. The diversity of beak shape indicates their specialized skills in foraging for food.
