So the parrot is going to be a stool pigeon?

Leave it to the parrot to sing like a canary...

The Case of the Perjured Parrot

The only witness to a rich man's murder is his parrot, who keeps repeating the suspect's name. But in court, everyone is surprised at what the bird says next. Perry does his magic at an informal coroner's Inquest in a rural area.

Oh great, so Phoenix Wright cases exist in real life too. Is the defendant also afraid of earthquakes and is the chief prosecutor still carrying a bullet in his shoulder from the day he shot his rival?

Does the defence attorney's assistant gain six inches and three cup sizes every so often?

What if the defendant has the parrot murdered to keep him from testifying?

Prosecutor: "Your honor, there's a problem with the next witness."
Judge: "What's wrong with him?"
Prosecutor: "He's dead, that's what's wrong with him."
Defendant: "No he's not; he's resting."
