    preplacing pebbles for the next season and not wondering "where did my egg go" ???

    I've seen them doing this on other sites late in the season (well, early in winter I guess). I wonder if pebble stealing is so

    ingrained that they naturally do it? Also I can imagine still wanting to sit on pebbles rather than snow... 😃

    Well, they might be Northern Gentoos?, then the timing would be about OK. Check out the BCs.

    In addition to yshish's observation, as I understand it pebble nest penguins tend to gather pebbles whenever there is an opportunity.

    (Thanks for the link, @gardenmaeve I forgot to put it in the post. I was trying to explain the penguin above, lying in the nest)

    Yshish is the creator of that Breeding Cycles chart. 😉 It is linked in the FAQs in the " FAQ - 4th AL: Breeding cycles, mating behavior, mixed colonies, site locations "

    @gardenmaeve I'd like to highlight that I used breeding cycles created by someone else as a reference, the original ones come from Pinguins info

    but can't be linked directly to the Talk so I had to draw my own. Anyway, they were approved by the scientists 😃
