It's not Mardi Gras in Hawaii. They're a few species of sea birds in the Sulidae family, which includes Gannets.

Near the Sea Life marine theme park on the windward side of Oahu are a couple of islands where the Red-footed Boobies nest, along with other marine bird species. The Boobies often fly past the the windward shore of Oahu at close range:

and more common by far than the Cardinal is the Common Mynah, also not native to the Hawaiian islands:
