Observation details

I saw a few feeding early in the morning, then on my way back to the kayak, I was walking through loose sand when I spotted one. When he plopped down into a shallow hole, I started noticing he was not alone. All 51 were hunkering down, camouflaged quite well, into these feet-print holes that were created in the sand. I would not have seen them had it not been for the one that got up.
