Much as I love the Northern Cardinal with its bright red coat of feathers, I could not help but be impressed by its tropical cousin. I had not known about Brazilian Cardinals, or Red Crested Cardinals, before going to Hawaii, much less seen one. But these birds, brought to Hawaii from South America in the 1930s, are now common on the island of Oahu.
