Bird isn't the word for one Lexington woman after finding out that her three exotic parrots were stolen from her house on Lancaster Ave while she was in the hospital.
Lillian Head was recovering from a surgical operation at Good Samaritan hospital when she got a phone call from her sister-in-law who was doing a house check that the birds were missing.
"I love those babies," said Head. "They are my life. It's all I got."
Head purchased an African Grey parrot named 'Diero' four years ago and two Senegal parrots, Billy and Casey, two years ago.
Head described Diero as a "little con artist" who would always trick her into letting him out of his cage.
"He crows like a rooster," said Head. "He likes that song 'I Want to be a Millionaire'. He'll dance to that."
Head believes this wasn't a random crime, adding that whomever stole the birds probably knew her and knew she had valuable animals.
"It's not the money," said Head. "They don't know anybody but me."
Head is offering a $500 reward for anyone who has information that will lead to the reunion of her beloved birds.
"Somebody knows someone that just got three birds," said Head. "It breaks my heart."
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the birds is asked to call the Lexington Police Department.
