"Say it's me that you'll adore, for now and evermore... That's all..."
The Red-Crested Cardinal is in fact not a true cardinal. They actually belong to the tanager family, but their red Santa hats make them appear to be of the cardinal family. We have these funny birds all over Hawaii. They were introduced from Central/South America and have acclimated rather comfortably.
I see this Red-Crested Cardinal patiently waiting for his lady to find him. And then he will love and cherish her like no other!
