Bottle-nosed Dolphin

Off the jetty at the end of the Rockport beach, we discovered dolphins circling each other. Bottle-nosed Dolphins are the most likely species to be found along inshore areas along the Texas coast.
I presume that these dolphins are cooperatively feeding, although I can not find much data in a cursory search of the Internet. These dolphins may be herding small fish to trap them along the jetty, or perhaps they are circling to concentrate a fish school.
