The Beach II is a chapter from the Seventh Iteration.


At the nest’s exit, Grant and the others observe the raptors on the edge of a swamp, near the beach that looks out onto the Pacific Ocean. They are all lined up together, staring south. A ship appears from the south and the animals watch it. Grant observes how they all behave as a group, and decides that they are organized around a matriarchal pecking order. He concludes that they are staring at the ocean because they want to migrate.
