In the waning daylight, we drove to the north end of Vendel Road. From the observation deck, we watched the numbers of Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese flying in to their roost locations.
Also seen from there were Ruddy Duck, American White Pelican, Cattle Egret, Black-necked Stilt, and Marsh Wren. At dusk, we had Sora, Virginia Rail, American Bittern, and the 'Yuma' Clapper Rail. We spent the night at the Brawley Inn.
