    The key is that Darwin's finches live on different islands. The finches cannot fly from one island to another - the populations are isolated from each other. That means that they cannot breed with each other. So as different mutations create different gene variants in each population of finches, those variants are essentially isolated from each other. Is that much clear?

    It is indeed. As each population gets its own set of unique mutations, they resemble each other less and less until they become different species. Thanks for working through it. :D
