Description:    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, and a variety of sparrows are usually present. The berry crop has been abundant and there is a great deal of food for Cedar Waxwings and American Robins that spend the winter here. Northern Cardinal is common. American Beavers have been very active and you will see the results of their industriousness. We frequently have excellent, prolonged views of Muskrat and from time to time White-tailed Deer.
