dark and they started feeding on beach grass seeds well before sunup. Gave
me a lot of time to approach them before photographic light was available.
I had not realized before today that they sometimes feed on the seed heads
of standing grass, and not only on the ground as I’ve observed in the
past.. Was a blast watching these birds interact as they fed. Continuing,
but growing flock."
