Red-crested Cardinal (Paroaria coronata)

It was a nice day at the beach but higher elevation, 4000 Feet, it was a constant rainy mist. This guy popped up as I was starting down the wet and muddy Pihea Trail at Koke'e State Park. I actually slipped and fell but managed to keep the camera w/tripod a'float. A common bird on Kauai, an introduced species from South America.
