Bird Heard

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
Crested Cardinal (Paroaria coronata). 
"Brazilian Cardinal"
This South American was 
introduced to Hawaii 
circa 1930 

" I owe my success to
 having listened respectfully
 to the very best advice, 
and then going away 
and doing the 
exact opposite. "
                            G. K. Chesterton 

Linking to

" I found that 
vulnerability is
the glue that holds
relationships together.
It's the magic sauce. "
Brene Brown 

" Challenges are 
what make life interesting
 and overcoming them
 is what makes 
life meaningful. "
                    Joshua J. Marine


Thank You!
Warmly, cloudia

Ah, GK Chesterton, a wise (and mischievous) chap indeed.

Why do you have to be blessed with such colourful birds when you already have all the colours of the rainbow in your islands?

I am stunned by the beauty of the Brazilian crested cardinal. And G. K. Chesterton gave youth great advice!

Luckily, I didn't listen to Chesterton. Most advice is helpful, I find.
