Afternoons on this Kauai beach are quite windy, so most of the tents are anchored among the few trees around the edge. These trees are multi-purpose. The ubiquitous Kauai chickens roost in them at night.
If you've ever lived with chickens, you know that "the rooster crows at the break of dawn" is a myth. The rooster crows whenever he feels like it. In a campground with maybe eight roosters, they feel like it a lot. I am up with the chickens, and it is 3 AM.
