Also known as Cedar Canyon Marsh this is a peat soil marsh bordered by willows, deciduous woods, conifers, brushrows, and farmland. American Bitterns are the star of the show. A spring visit will almost surely reward you with several ga-lunking to each other across the marsh. Virginia Rail, Sora, Cinnamon Teal, Hooded Merganser, Gadwall, Wilson?s Snipe, Marsh Wren, and Common Yellowthroat can also be found. Check the trees for Red-breasted Sapsucker, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Western Wood-Pewee. Overhead, watch for Vaux's Swift and five species of swallows. Mudflats 0.5 mi up Killin Rd (gravel) may have Greater Yellowlegs, Solitary Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, and Pectoral Sandpiper in migration. From Hwy 26, turn off on Hwy 6 toward Banks/Tillamook. Drive 5.8 mi to Cedar Canyon Rd and turn R. After 1.3 mi, park at the intersection with Killin Rd; wetlands on both sides of Cedar Canyon Rd.
