I LOVE THIS BIRD- see it everywhere. "Red-Crested Cardinal" also known as "Brazilian Cardinal." Seen often in pairs, generally on lawns and in trees. It is a fairly aggressive species. It was introduced to Hawaii around 1930 from South America. It is now common in Oahu and Maui. It feeds on seeds, plant matter, insects and fruits.
