Parrot befriends Amazon Alexa and 'goes on shopping spree'

African grey parrots are known for their exceptionally high intelligence and mimicking skills.

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.

Rocco, an African grey parrot, is having a love affair with Amazon's Alexa.

Alexa returns Rocco's love by letting the bird use her for his shopping needs.

"So far I've had to remove a light bulb, some berries, a kite, ice-cream, strawberries, a water melon, raisins and some broccoli".

Rocco's owner Marion Wischnewski told the Daily Mail that she was shocked when she saw what he had done. "Often I come in and there's music playing", Wischnewski told DailyMail. Rocco was subsequently placed under the care of a NAWT employee named Marion Wischnewski whereupon he quickly started activating Alexa.

Imitating his owner, the parrot managed to order stuff like fruit, snacks, and even a kettle, so his human has to now check her account every day to make sure she cancels any orders that Rocco made. Prior to shopping online with the friendly help of Amazon's Alexa, our little friend was re-homed from the National Animal Welfare Trust Sanctuary in Berkshire for going all "gangs-of-Wasseypur" on the visitors!
