It seemed that several of the Dunlin were resting and feeding at the same time...being careful with the incoming tide. Boundary Bay, BC.

In 30 years, I've never experience something like this. While hunkered down at the water's edge, well over a thousand Dunlin and other sandpipers started making their way towards me. Eventually, all I could hear was a chorus of "peeps" as the birds quickly followed the tide moving in...eventually surrounding me. It was like I was feeding with them at one point. I took a few photos and crawled away, making sure not to flush them on their journey of several thousand miles.
