CAPE CANAVERAL, Fl. -- Taco was looking for love Wednesday morning.

Taco is en EMU - a six foot flightless bird--who decided to take a walk down Florida Highway A1A....during rush hour.

The big bird approached cars and even a man on a scooter ---but found no feathered friends.

Taco was looking for a mate...and jumped a four-foot fence at his home, wandering several blocks out to the highway.

Taco's owner finally got the bird safely into his truck and back home, which he shares with dogs, chickens, and 19 parrots.
