Coon Point and Viewing Platform No. 1 along Reeder Rd offer views of large wintering duck and goose flocks, with chance of rare Emperor or Ross’s Goose along with Canada, Cackling, Snow and Greater White-fronted Goose. Rentenaar Rd at the N end of Reeder Rd is one of Oregon’s best winter sparrow patches, with Swamp and White-throated Sparrows found annually along with more common Song, Sooty Fox, Lincoln’s, Golden-crowned, White-crowned, and Savannah Sparrows. Coon Point and beaches along Reeder Rd draw migrant shorebirds in late summer. The beaches along Reeder Rd are very popular summer destinations; birders will also enjoy nesting Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Warbling Vireo, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Bullock’s Oriole.
