Parrot that witnessed murder will sing like a canary at trial.

PROSECUTORS in America have unveiled their key witness in a murder case ... a parrot.

The African grey has begun repeating the last words of the victim.

Now legal chiefs are considering whether the parrot's words are admissible evidence in the trial.

Glenna Duram, 48, is accused of murdering husband Martin in front of their pet parrot Bud in Michigan in 2015.

The bird is said to be recalling an argument between the pair, switching between male and female voices.

Bud has apparently squawked: "Get out.

"Where will I go? "Don't f***ing shoot." Newaygo County prosecutors say the parrot won't be appearing in the witness stand.

Duram is accused of shooting her husband five times.
