Galapagos Mockingbirds

These are two mockingbirds I captured in two separate locations in the Galapagos Islands in late August. The first (82408, 8/20/2015) was shot at Darwin Station in one of the tortoise dens. The other (8/24/2015) was in some bushes on the beach near Fernandina island. I would appreciate any help with the specific names and scientific names for them.
Thanks Bob

I think they're both Galapagos Mockingbirds Mimus parvulus

For the first one, you are talking about the CD Research Station on Santa Cruz, right?

That would mean that both birds are in the range of Galapagos Mocker, and outside the range of the alternatives.
