The Mill Race Trail is an easy walk, for the most part on flat level ground. You will be able to feed Black-capped Chickadees from the hand, with a very good chance that White-breasted Nuthatches will join them. We often see three species of woodpecker, Rusty Blackbirds are possible in mid October, a variety of sparrows are usually present, Brown Creeper is often seen, and there is always the possibility of Muskrat and American Mink. Barred Owl has been seen along the Mill Race the past couple of years, but we make no promises regarding that species!
