Not all of them. But there are Wilson’s plovers, ghost crabs, hogs, feral dog/coyotes, loggerhead turtles, and various inverts. Perhaps a mouse too.
Sharing with my hiking club on Facebook. Beautiful stuff!

Very nice post with fabulous photos. I do this with tracks in the snow, but we have nowhere near the diversity.
