The Red-crested Cardinal (Paroaria coronata) is a native bird in South America which was introduced in Hawaii many years ago. It is now very common on many of the Hawaiian Islands. Despite how very common the species is, it is quite beautiful. The first 20 images on the right were taken at the Kualoa Regional Park, Oahu, Hawaii, in August, 2012, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and a 1.4X extender. The first five shots show adult Red-crested Cardinals.
The next two images show a juvenile Red-crested Cardinal which was begging food from a nearby adult.
In the next five images, a pair of Red-crested Cardinals interact with one another.
