Oak Island Roadd passes through the Willamette Valley’s main wintering area for Sandhill Crane flocks. In addition to huge flocks of Canada and Cackling Goose, flocks of Greater White-fronted Goose can also be seen. Wintering raptors include Rough-legged Hawk, Merlin, and Peregrine Falcon. The Oak Island unit of the wildlife management area is closed October through April. After it opens in May, look for nesting Western Wood-Pewee, White-breasted Nuthatch, Cedar Waxwing and Black-headed Grosbeak along the 2-mile Oak Island Loop Trail.
