The skillful bird even had sophisticated table manners as it gripped the meal with its claw, lifting the the buttery treat to its beak to take small bites.
Le Coqatou clearly wanted the whole croissant to itself as cockatoos generally travel in flocks and forage for food together.
Bondi locals were quick to compare the feathered character to humans who frequent the neighbourhood’s hip café strips.
