It is difficult to tell the shape of this bill easily because it is held open - however, I think its long length points to a cactus finch rather than a ground finch
Of the finches found on Santa Cruz the beak suggests either sharp-beaked ground-finch (Geospiza difficilis) or the common cactus-finch (Geospiza scandens). Unfortunately without a scale it is very hard to tell which.
The pink bill indicates this is a non-breeding bird, the bill goes black when the bird is breeding. The streaky plumage suggests it is a female.
Could do with a scale and the beak closed to be sure. However, the whole group are dynamic and beak shape and size can be influenced by environmental factors as well as species.
