What that 'towel' thing was is actually called a "Happy Hut" (large, Green). Gabby can be very shy, and likes to hide behind that when she's feeling shy. It gives her a good amount of privacy.
As for how she sleeps, she has a triangluar perch made of wood and rope (The _ is made of wood, and the /\ is made of rope) and she hangs onto one of the sides behind the hut at night.
I've had Gabby since October 3, 2001
, and her hatchdate is April 21, 2002.
I've found that mini macaws can be very, very talkative, Gabby's vocabulary is somewhere around 30 words right now, and she's still learning. They hit 'the terrible twos' at about a year and a half, and it lasts a while. Stick it through, I'm going through it now. :rolleyes:
That is a Skinny Pig.
