In pictures: Parrots of the Caribbean auditions

Newsround's Adam went along to see parrots audition to be the official spokes-bird for the DVD of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest


The plucky parrot who wins will get to visit shops and meet fans as part of a promotional tour


The winning bird must have a good personality as it will have to do interviews with the media!





Now that's what we call a squawk-on part!



Loads of parrots and their owners turned up. The birds had to be able to learn lines and behave well. This parrot called Sweetheart came along to try out with her owner Vicky Hammond.





This blue and yellow macaw, called Gismo Baggins, showed off his driving skills - not so sure that'll get you the part Gismo!


Maxwell the macaw came along with his owner Jo Brady, who even dressed up for the event!
