TULSA, OK -- A woman known as the bird lady got some big gifts on Thursday.  A fire destroyed Betty Long's home last month and killed many of her pet birds.  She spent 25 years raising them and considered them part of the family.

Betty has a new home now thanks to the Tulsa Bird Club and the owners of her mobile home park.

"Oh goodness, yes.  It means I can buy a bed and have a place to sleep, in a new house thanks to West Wind," said Betty Long.

The home needs a little work.  Members of the Bird Club gave her check to help with that.
