Brookline, Mass. — A cockatoo with the screech of a dinosaur is back in his cage after irritating residents of a Boston suburb for months.

The white bird, named Dino because of his annoying call, flew away from his owner in July and into the trees of Brookline.

He had been gnawing on the woodwork of Nancy Gertner’s historic home. Gertner is a retired federal judge and senior lecturer at Harvard Law School.

The Boston Globe reports after worries he would freeze to death over the winter, Dino was finally captured Thursday by several people, including the bird’s owner.

The bird had developed a routine, arriving at the same house every day to eat food left for him by a couple living there.
