Need help to ID bird song

I recently took a trip to Hawaii Island. While there in January, I often heard this bird singing outside, but I never caught a glimpse of it. I really like the song and I'm just curious what bird makes it.

There is a whistle, rising in pitch, immediately followed by a falling whistle. This pair is repeated a few times, and then followed by several quick falling whistles.
I recorded it on my phone (file attached)

It sounds similar to the Northern Cardinal in this video,
except the falling component is missing.

Does anybody recognize it?

I just came across this video of the Yellow Billed Cardinal. I think it's a match.
