April 20 - Red-Crested Cardinal

I saw an interesting bird the other day on my walk.  It looked like a cardinal, but it was red, white and blue.  Very patriotic.  I asked around and was told that it was a red-crested cardinal, and when I googled it I learned that it was native to South America, and was only introduced to Hawaii in about 1930.  It's a really pretty bird and certainly looks at home here.
