Analyzing Packets from Amazon Echo


I am trying to analyze packets from an Amazon Echo using Wireshark. I have isolated the device (Amazon Echo Tap) and my PC as the only two devices connected to a Wi-Fi network. When I turn on Wireshark to begin transferring packets, there is traffic that is recorded on the screen, but when I go to do a search based on the MAC address of the Echo device, it comes up blank. I even tell Alexa commands while I am capturing packets, but a search still results in a blank screen. Is there anything I have to do or configuration I need to change to be able to see packet traffic from an Amazon Echo?

Any assistance will be appreciated. Thank you!
