    The owners said Baby has been in their family for 33 years and is worth about $2,000.

    "I feel bad. It's like they took my heart from my chest," said Elbian Nasco, bird owner. "I miss her. I really do."

    In addition to this family's theft, Miami Police said three birds were stolen from a different home several blocks away near Southwest 43rd and 2nd Street.

    Homeowner Peter Davila said the birds, two parakeets and a messenger pigeon, belonged to his mother-in-law. The pigeon found its way home after the theft.
