The Red-crested Cardinal is also known as the Brazilian Cardinal. It was imported to the Hawaiian Islands and I have seen it on both Oahu and Kauai. They were imported from South America where they are found in Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay. They eat seeds, plant matter, insects and fruit.
