The Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is an area of 8,004 acres of estuary located in Skagit County near Bay View State Park, Washington USA. The abundance of wildlife nurtured here is simply incredible. Geese, ducks, herons, eagles, and swans just to name a few. The sound of their multitude of calls as dusk falls is truly moving.
