Parrot uses Alexa to shop while owners away

Parrot eating snacks

It was then, sanctuary worker Marion Wischnewski volunteered to foster him and took him to her home in Oxfordshire.

While the owner is away, Rocco, the famed African grey parrot known for being foulmouthed, has been using Amazon Alexa to order snacks.

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

Despite being mischievous, Wischnewski thinks that her parrot is the sweetest.

A sneaky parrot nearly ran up a hefty Amazon bill after it began placing orders through its owner's Alexa device.




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

A parrot in the United Kingdom used his owner's Alexa to shop online while his owner was away, according to the Daily Mail.

He has also asked the smart device to tell him jokes and play him songs. Things escalated when it began ordering items like water melons, raisins, broccoli, ice cream, a light bulb and even a kite. However, Rocco failed to stay out of trouble for long and this time he had help from his "friend" Alexa.

Thankfully for Marion's bank balance, the parental lock on Alexa has prevented Rocco's various orders to go through, but she says she is often finding rescheduled events or items added to her grocery list.
