We all know that, figuratively, a loving pet can light up a room. But did you know that a loving pet can also light up a room – literally? That's one of the tricks Petra the African Grey Parrot learned, when her owner, YouTube user IndianRingnecks, got their family an Amazon Echo:

But that's not the only incredible thing Petra knows how to do. After watching these other three videos of her showing off her smart-tech tricks, you might be running out for an African Grey Parrot of your own to help around the house – Amazon Echo, not included.

1. Help with the Shopping List

Your dog might be able to help you fetch your groceries, but can it make you a grocery list? Petra the parrot sure can. She even throws in a couple of things for herself in there, just in case her owners forget that she's out of "Fedex" and "hello".

2. Fun Fact Finder

We all love to learn new things and so do African Grey Parrots. In this video, Petra asks Alexa a question about "rock" to help her family learn a little more about geology – or a certain hunky celebrity.

3. Bird of Humility

You'd think that her newfound fame as one of the premier, smart-tech enabled parrots would go to Petra's head, but she's still modest about her abilities. See what Petra says when one of her owners asks what she thinks about her status as an internet sensation.
