Yellow-fronted Canary

The Yellow-fronted Canary is one of many species introduced to Hawaii, in this case having been brought from Africa. For me it's never completely satisfying to see a bird outside of it's natural setting, even though like this canary it might be very attractive. Somehow the park along Waikiki Beach doesn't seem like an appropriate place for a bird that should be hunting for seeds in the open woodlands of Kenya.
