Default Another common bird in Hawaii

This is a very common bird and is seen everywhere in Hawaii, but I can't identify it. Can anyone help?

Looks like an introduced species.

Thanks for identifying this avian pest for me. I guest introducing this non-native bird is a double edged sword, it does some good in controlling the pesky insects but causes a lot of damages to the fruit crops.

Thanks! These guys are everywhere. They may be taken over the island.
