Naughty parrot befriends owner’s Alexa and orders goodies from Amazon

Rocco loves Alexa!

Sanctuary worker Marion Wischnewski volunteered to foster him and took him to her home in Oxfordshire.

Rocco reportedly talks to Amazon's voice-activated, personal assistant, "Alexa", and has purchased a vast range of items including fruit, vegetables and ice cream. After she found out that Rocco is getting mischievous again, she had to constantly check if the parrot has ordered anything.

Rocco, who was taught to curse by a previous owner, is evidently loving his new home, interacting with Alexa up to 40 times a day and mastering countless household sounds.

He's been chatting her up the whole day, says his owner, and even manages to order stuff that the owner then has to check and cancel each day, reports The Times.

Wischnewski also said Rocco will have Alexa play music.

The African grey population is dwindling precisely because they imitate human speech so well and people love to use them as pets.

Rocco's owner Marion Wischnewski told the Daily Mail that she was shocked when she saw what he had done.

The African Grey has also used Alexa to buy light bulbs, a kettle and even a kite.

And while playing music isn't such a bad thing, Rocco's shopping attempt isn't quite that great. "He loves to dance and has the sweetest personality and romantic tunes".
