Others will know more, but none of the areas you identify will be congested, except by birds.  Traffic from Sacramento to these areas should not be bad going south, especially at that early hour.
Desmond Rd. is very accessible from Hwy 99.  There should be cranes there, but check eBird to verify.
Enjoy! Dan Airola 916/494-1283 <d.airola...>

  I've got one free day to visit the area near Cosumnes River Preserve to see the Sandhill Cranes (and other wonderful avifauna). To my dismay, it is the same day as the Lodi Crane Festival -- Saturday, Nov. 3.
I'll be out and about early, before sunrise. Can you suggest which spot is likely to be the least congested? Staten Island Road? Desmond Road/Bruceville Road? Lost Slough Wetlands trail? Another?
Many thanks for your advice.
