bird
   1. a young female companion
   The word, when referring to a young woman, has also meant a mistress, as in Holman Hunt's Bird in a Gilded Cage of 1854, and, in America, a prostitute who might operate from a bird-cage, or brothel:
    He stared at Amy as he shook Barry's hand, a calculated taunt which seemed to say, 'I like your bird, mate.' (Fiennes, 1996)
   2. imprisonment
   Derived from the caging. Usually in the phrase to do bird, to be imprisoned:
    If it was anywhere else in the system I was doing bird they wouldn't have left you alone with me. (Rendell, 1991)
   3. the vagina
   A vulgar male use, and, in such circles, the bird's nest is pubic hair:
    This bitch wears these short shorts... when I'm down on my knees... I kneel there and look right at her bird. (Wambaugh, 1975)
