A parrot in the UK, once thrown out of the National Animal Welfare Trust Reserve for over-swearing, is back. This time he uses Amazon Alexa to order items while his owner is away.
Rocco, a gray parrot, is said to have learned to order watermelons and strawberries with Alexa. He also tried to order light bulbs, ice cream and a kite.
Marion Wischnewski, who works in the sanctuary, adopted Rocco after he was removed from the sanctuary for his evil language. She told the Daily Mail that she has to check her account every day to see what the parrot has done.
"I have to check the shopping list when I come home from work and cancel all ordered items," Wischnewski said.
In addition to using the device to order things, Rocco uses Alexa to listen to music and is said to be a big fan of Kings of Leon.
"They chat with each other all day," said Wischnewski. "Often I come in and music is played."
Fortunately, Rocco's order can not be bought thanks to a parental lock that Wischnewski places on the device.
