Birdly is a minstrel living in Labyrinthia who performs with his pet parrot Cracker. He was a witness in the witch trial of Maya Fey.

Minstrel in courtEdit

Main articles: The Great Witch and The Golden Court

Around the time of Espella Cantabella's first trial, Birdly began to grow in popularity to the point that the current town minstrel, Bardly, considered him to be an unbeatable rival.

Birdly was present in front of the late Newton Belduke's house with Primstone when they heard a scream coming from inside, and so rushed in with Luke Triton and Emeer Punchenbaug. In the alchemist's study, they found that Hershel Layton had been to gold, with Maya Fey nearby holding a Talea Magica. The witnesses deduced that she had cast the Goldor spell on the professor, and so accused her of being a witch.

Birdly was then called to the Witches' Court with the other witnesses to testify about the crime. The minstrel mostly sang his testimony while playing his lute. Later, his parrot Cracker was called to testify about what events happened at which time, as the bird was able to vividly "play-back" the sounds at the time of the crime. During the second half of the trial, Punchenbaug recruited Birdly to be his personal bard.

After the trial, Birdly's popularity continued to grow, much to Bardly’s despair.


  • His English name is a play on both "bird" (in reference to his pet parrot) and the name of Birdly's self-proclaimed rival "Bardly".
  • "Allégorio", his name in the French localization, is a play on both the French for "allegory" (allégorie) and the musical term "allegro" (music played in a quick, lively tempo).


  • Birdly is the first witness in the Ace Attorney series that testifies to different music. The second person is Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin.
