Who’s a Naughty Boy?

A cheeky parrot used his owner’s voice-activated assistant Alexa to place his own orders on Amazon.

Rocco, an African Grey parrot, who had a history of using blue language, bought a range of fruit and veg and kept asking Alexa to play Kings of Leon songs.

The chatty bird who was taken in by his new owner after a bird sanctuary kicked him out for swearing at visitors also ordered ice cream, a light bulb and a kite.

Rocco, known for his ability to copy words, started ordering things after he saw his owner using Alexa on her Amazon Echo account to buy grocery shopping.

He has since been repeating her voice to order all the things he likes to eat.

Rocco’s owner Marion Wischnewski, from Blewbury, Oxfordshire, UK, said: “I have to check the shopping list when I come in from work and cancel all the items he’s ordered.

“Alexa and Rocco chat away to each other all day. Often I come in and there’s music playing.”

Ms Wischnewski rehomed Rocco from the National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary in Berkshire, UK after its staff feared his use of swear words would upset visitors.
