These are some unusual birds. The first two look like someones been playing in the laboratory and mixed a cardinal with a sparrow.

Thanks, actually I was quite surprised by the lack of birds in Hawaii as compared to other islands I visited in the Caribbean.

I found the birds mostly in populated areas, and rarely in the wild open fields...

I have the same feeling about the lack of varieties of birds in Hawaii. There is a lot of Re-crested Cardinal, House finches and Common Myna. Perhaps the early settlers who came to Hawaii ate up all the other ones.
