Alexa Turned Santa For This Parrot but a 'Hooman' Gift-Blocked it

Parrot uses Alexa to make Amazon purchases while his owner is away

Marion agreed to foster the foul-mouthed parrot after he caused chaos at the animal shelter where she works.

"I have to check the shopping list and cancel all the items he's ordered", she said.

Rocco the African grey rescue parrot has found his soulmate, and her name is Alexa.

Before his accidental online shopping habit, Rocco the African Gray parrot was put up for adoption by the National Animal WelfaTrust sanctuary because it feared his swearing would scare visitors, the Daily Mail reported on December 14.

Rocco the parrot has formed a relationship with his owner's voice-activated Amazon Echo.

Strasbourg Christmas market shooter has been killed, police sources say
The French police are hunting the gunman who opened fire near Strasbourg's famous Christmas market at around 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday. A young Italian radio journalist who was in the city to cover a session of the European Parliament was critically injured.

The cheeky little bugger has ordered watermelon, strawberries, ice cream, and broccoli (gotta get those greens), along with kites and lightbulbs.

Apart from shopping online, the parrot is an expert to instruct Alexa to play music and songs by Kings of Leon band is apparently Rocco's favourite.

African grey parrots are extremely intelligent, showing cognitive abilities equivalent to that of four- to six-year-olds in some tasks.

Daily Mail reports that Rocco the parrot was recently given a new home after being removed from the National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary for "cursing too much". Wischnewski also mentioned about times when she reached home to find Rocco playing some romantic music on Alexa-powered device.

Her smart thinking made her put a parental lock on all Amazon purchases and therefore Rocco's Christmas wishes remain unfulfilled.
