Ok, really red vents, but that’s not as good of a title. I saw quite a few Red-vented Bulbuls and Red-whiskered Bulbuls while in O’ahu. Unfortunately, that’s not a good thing because they are a fairly destructive invasive species (info here and here) in Hawaii.
I was constantly struck at how colorful many of the invasive species were. I guess with so few predators, you can be as colorful as you want.

Hi JJ, we have the Red-whiskered Bulbul here in Australia at the moment also, we see it in spring-summer, or should I say hear it first. We don’t get the Red-vented variety here.

I didn’t realize that you have them there! That’s really cool.
