I was able to find this bird while searching for brown birds on Oahu on What Bird.  I did not find any image of it on the image search elsewhere. :(  And it took several visits to sites to find it´s latin name. Strange! Yet I found it is a runaway "cage bird" as well.

  2. Lucky you!!! There was one reported in East Texas this past year/year and a half, and I would've loved to have seen it. They're gorgeous.

  3. Great bird, I love them, in Africa they appear in small and very agile flocks.

  4. In that second shot, I thought it might be gathering things to build a nest!
