A Rufous-sided Towhee flew across the path up ahead and sang from the brush. A Hermit Thrush made a brief appearance, as well. Song and Swamp Sparrows bounced from tree to tree as I headed along the edge of the marsh.
Along the south side of the marsh a flock of 15 Sandhill Cranes flew in and landed somewhere inside the marsh. As winds picked up I enjoyed distant views of several kettles of Turkey Vultures and Ring-billed Gulls over the landfill before heading back to the car.
