A parrot named Rocco, in Didcot, United Kingdom, uses the Amazon Alexa smart device to buy and listen to music.


Its owner, Marion Wischnewski, says the bird has bought strawberries, watermelons, raisins, broccoli, ice cream and even ordered a kite, light bulbs, and a kettle, reports People.

"Rocco and Alexa talk all day. Then I have to review the shopping list and cancel all the items that he have ordered," says Wischnewski.

Parrot fell in love with owner's Amazon Alexa and uses it to order shopping, as reported by The Sun. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.


This African gray parrot, a species known for its intelligence and imitation skills, was rescued by the National Animal Welfare organization.

Since his previous owner taught him to repeat many vulgarities and the center did not want the bird to show up in public, Marion works in the place, opting to take care of him at home.

Rocco also likes to dance and always asks Alexa, the artificial intelligence support, to play her favorite songs.

All bird lovers want the world to know how smart and special their feathered friends are, and a great way to show off your bird's talents is to teach your bird some cool tricks that will impress anyone who sees them.
