Parrot knows how to tell Alexa what to do


WASHINGTON (Circa) — A mischievous parrot called Rocco has been getting in trouble lately, but he's also been getting all his demands answered.

Rocco knows how to speak to his foster parent's Amazon Alexa to give it instructions. He tells her to play music, turn off the lights and even makes purchases according to a variety of reports.

The African Gray parrot currently lives with a volunteer from the National Animal Welfare Trust in Berkshire named Marion Wischnewski. Rocco got into trouble at the office due to his foul mouth.

Wischnewski lets Rocco talk to Alexa to his heart's desire, articles say. Her parental lock prevents him from order the treats he wants but he gets to play music like he wants.

Rocco isn't the only parrot famous for loving Alexa. Petra the parrot, also an African Gray, went viral for commanding her Alexa to turn off the lights. African Grays are one of the most popular pet birds due to their talkative nature.
