Pet Pooja! Chatty parrot uses Amazon Alexa to shop for snacks while owner is away

For many people caught up in Christmas shopping fever, deciding what gifts to buy for their friends and family is one of the biggest questions, but a parrot had little difficulty in choosing and even ordering himself some gifts. An African grey parrot named Rocco ordered a ton of goodies from e-commerce website Amazon while his owner was away.

So the question still stands, how did the parrot access Amazon website? The mischievous parrot used his owner’s Amazon Alexa device to order a range of his favourite snacks. Rocco ordered his favourite snacks including watermelons, raisins, broccoli and ice cream, along with a light bulb and a kite, reports BBC. According to reports, Rocco earlier lived in the National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary in Berkshire and knows how to interact with Alexa. Rocco also sometimes enjoys his favourite music on Alexa.

Rocco was re-homed from the National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary in Berkshire because the staff thought his foul language might upset visitors, reported BBC. And so Rocco was re-homed, and after which, Marion Wischnewski, an employee of the sanctuary, took Rocco to her home in Oxfordshire. Marion Wischnewski told DailyMail about Rocco’s interactions with Alexa, “They chat away to each other all day. I’ve come home before and he has romantic music playing.” She further added, “‘I have to check the shopping list when I come in from work and cancel all the items he’s ordered.”
