John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Video - Come Fly with "Holiday" the Macaw in Cocoa Beach!

Video - Come Fly with "Holiday" the Macaw in Cocoa Beach!

Newsflash: Holiday has been found and returned to owners Tom and Cathy. He was only a few blocks away and a lady who saw my Craig's List Ad knew where he lived. The naughty bird is now back in his cage and will have his wings clipped next week.

"Holiday" the Macaw gives us quite a show on top of his cage. His wings are not clipped and he sometimes flies into the palm trees to escape aggressive feral cats but he can take care of himself. They give him his space for the most part. Holiday is owned by Tom, a horseshoe playing buddy of mine in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Video Camera: Panasonic HDC-TM90. I would highly recommend this camcorder.

Below is a still photo captured from the video.

Colorful Macaw

A few days after this video was shot, Holiday flew up into the trees but he's back home again after two days on the lam :-).

John,

I don't know why, but all of a sudden I feel like having a Captain Morgan.

Rich - Your place or mine? We can have a toast to Holiday's flight to the Bahamas :-)

John - I want to tell you if I had colors like that on my body, I'd definitely find another line of work:-)  I would certainly like to invite that bird to my next Pirate Party.  It can have a place of honor sitting on my shoulder:-)

Myrl - Now just what line of work are we talking about? :-) I'm sure Holiday would like to perch on your shoulder but he flew off Wed. and we've been looking for him ever since.

I bet the voice on this bad boy rocks!  My son looks at the birds at the vet, and loves em!

John - "What line of work are we talking about?". . .Well, let's just say I wouldn't need to give up my day job. . .LOL

Chris - You're right, Holiday can squawk with the best of them. Kids love birds!

Myrl - You could enter the Cocoa Beach Pier Bikini Contest this week end. Don't forget your feathered boa :-)

Hi John,

The Macaws are such fasinating birds and so beautiful. I hope you get him back soon, Thanks for the great video. I loved watching it and the music was great too.

I sure do hope you found him by now.... maybe he has found a female friend and is making babies. He will come back. I sure hope he does...sending prayers up that it happens.

Thanks Kristin - He is a colorful bird with lots of personality.

Hi Keith - He's now back safe and sound!

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) about 8 years ago

Thanks Sussie - I don't think he had time to make babies but who knows? There may be some Mini Holidays in the works :-)
