Corienne Pretorius was mystified when a package containing gift boxes arrived from Amazon. Neither she nor anyone in her family had ordered them.
She finally concluded that Buddy, her African Grey parrot activated her smart Amazon Echo device to place the order.
Buddy can mimic her voice (though he doesn’t talk when she’s around). Pretorius heard him talking to Alexa in the next room and put two and two together. You can read more about Buddy and his Amazon order here.
*It’s a good thing my flock doesn’t talk. Millet and toys would arrive at our door nonstop.
