In past pre-nesting behavior, Mrs. Tiger would begin to spend extended periods of time sitting in the nest pot during her nightly visits. As those visits grew longer over the course of several nights, we would know she was about to begin laying when she would remain there after sunrise. Altera showed the same behavior last month in her first egg-laying efforts.
Fast forward to several weeks later, and we are now beginning to see Altera again take extended visits, only this time on the east ledge, which is the nest site for Season 2 - Season 4. Consequently, cameras have all been moved to this ledge to monitor her visitation. We've kept the stream live so that viewers can have an opportunity to witness their pre-nesting behavior, which is something we haven't streamed in the past.
