U.K. – A parrot with a dirty mouth has taken a liking to his owner’s Amazon Alexa and keeps using the device to order things while his owner is away, according to The Independent.

Not long ago, Rocco the parrot was kicked out of the National Animal Welfare Trust Sanctuary for swearing too much, and now he’s getting into more trouble after befriending the popular Amazon device.

Rocco is an African Grey Parrot who lives in Didcot, Oxfordshire, U.K. He has reportedly learned to use the voice speaker on his owner’s Alexa device and regularly order treats like ice cream, strawberries, watermelon, and raisins.

“I have to check the shopping list when I come in from work and cancel all the item’s he’s ordered,” Sanctuary worker Marion Wischnewski told the Daily Mail.

Wischnewski volunteered to foster Rocco after he was kicked out of the sanctuary for swearing.

Rocco reportedly also uses the device to play music.

“I’ve come home before and he has romantic music playing,” Wischnewski said. “He loves to dance and has the sweetest personality.
