Kendall Frost Mission Bay Reserve|
San Diego County, California
Kendall Frost Mission Bay Reserve is situated on the Northern edge of Mission Bay in San Diego, California and occupies 16 acres of the 30 total acres of Mission Bay Northern Wildlife Preserve. Habitats include South coastal salt marsh, tidal channels, salt flats, mudflats, sand spit, and eelgrass beds.
The Kendall-Frost Marsh is ideal for bird watching, even without entering the Reserve. The best overview of the marsh is from Crown Point Drive, where there are two viewing platforms. From here, many resident and migratory species can be seen, including -- if you're lucky! -- the Light-footed clapper rail, reddish egret, Belding's savannah sparrow, California least tern, and Black skimmers.
