Naughty parrot keeps using Alexa to buy things online

According to the paper, the parrot's owner, Marion Wischnewski, made a decision to foster him after volunteering at a sanctuary.

"I've come home before, and he has romantic music playing", Wischnewski said.

A parrot who has a history of swearing too much has fallen in love with his owner's Amazon Alexa and he keeps using it to go shopping, according to The Independent.

Despite being mischievous, Wischnewski thinks that her parrot is the sweetest. When left on his own at home, Rocco figures out that he can "talk" to his owner's Alexa-enabled hands-free speaker Amazon Echo. He was re-homed from the National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary in Berkshire because staff thought his bad language might upset visitors.


"Rocco and Alexa chat away to each other all day". NAWT says he's attempted to shop for treats, including strawberries, watermelon, raisins and ice cream.

Apart from shopping online, the parrot is an expert to instruct Alexa to play music and songs by Kings of Leon band is apparently Rocco's favourite. Rocco even tried to order a few items from Amazon, but the owner wisely had set up controls to prevent unauthorized purchases.

The African Gray is a highly intelligent bird known for its ability to mimic words and sounds.
