Georgi Abbott lives in the interior of British Columbia, Canada with her husband (Neil), their Min Pin dog (Neeka) and of course, Pickles the African Grey parrot.
They all enjoy the great outdoors and spend every spare moment working on their yard and wild bird habitat. They have a small trout pond, waterfall, vegetable gardens, fruit trees and Pickles has an outdoor aviary so that he can join everyone outside and talk to the neighbors.
Georgi takes Pickles out and around town, on walks and hikes around the lake, in his special birdie back pack cage. Pickles loves getting out like this and meeting new people but he especially loves embarrassing Georgi in public with his different noises and chatter.
Pickles is free to go in and out of his cage at all times, he goes for walks in a birdie backpack and accompanies Georgi at book signings and presentations. He has a very large vocabulary, he's a character and very entertaining.
Georgi has four books published in both paper book and ebook ...
- Pickles The Parrot: A Humorous Look at Life With an African Grey
- Pickles The Parrot Returns: My Continued Adventures With a Birdbrain
- Pickles The Parrot Speaks: On Life, The Universe, And Sesame Snaps
- Fifty Shades of African Grey: Pickles the Parrot Dominates Life
She also writes humorous short stories about Pickles for Good Bird Magazine and periodically writes articles on Nature and Conservation.

Another great book! Just finished it and thoroughly enjoyed Pickles' antics. His mom, Georgi has some great recipes and behavior tips that are helpful to African Grey owners, as well as parrot owners in general. Having 2 Greys, we have the same warped sense of humor as Georgi and her hubby--every day is a neverending adventure with parrots :0)

I recommend this book to any parrot owner novice to expert along with people who love a smart parrot. Not only do you peek into the life of a funny parrot but you also get to see some of his witty and hilarious facebook posts. A must for all African Grey owners. I love Pickles! Well written and a fun easy read.
