Cops are looking for a pair of suspects who they say tried to rob a Rego Park dental office, then attempted to steal birds from a pet store a few doors down the block.

Two men are accused of stealing an assortment of birds from a Rego Park pet store, minutes after trying to burglarize a dental office down the street.

In addition to taking the animals, the pair also swiped bird cages from the Petland Discounts on 63rd Drive near Saunders Street at about 3:20 a.m. Wednesday before dumping them in a nearby alleyway, cops said.

The break-in triggered the store alarm and the manager was called, according to police. The birds, which included a white ringneck, a red bronze canary and several varieties of finches, along with three cages, were then found next to the store.

Around 2:55 a.m., the suspects also attempted to burglarize a dentist office, located at 94-24 63rd Drive, but fled without taking anything, officials said.

Police describe both suspects as 17 to 20 years old and about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
