I caught Roland the cockatoo today on the Coney Island boardwalk down by Brighton beach. He was sitting with his owner, and her friend who had two dogs and at first I didn't see him, but then he stood out. He was on a leash too and was a big show off. His owner told me that she has had him for 20 years and he could live to be 100 if treated right.. He was doing tricks and not shy at all because there were a lot of people walking around. He lives with her in an apartment and they enjoy their outings on the boardwalk with friends..
