Being rescued into an interspecies flock gives you opportunities you might never come across otherwise.
Rather than observing the strange large shell-less species from afar, you now get to watch them right up close.
If you want to, you can even interact with one face to face!
Like going on a personalized wildlife safari (complete with scheduled nap times and catered snack breaks), you can keep your distance or come up as close as you want to in order to get a better look.
If things get too weird (like if the shell-less being whips out that small rectangular flashing device she is always waving at you) you can just draw back into the camouflaging grasses and observe from a distance instead.
