    At about 350 acres, Thorncrag is the largest bird sanctuary in New England, and is probably one of few wildlife sanctuaries anywhere that is a 10-minute drive from the downtown of a major city. It is privately owned and operated by the Stanton Bird Club, but is open to the public for hiking, picnics, jogging, and cross-country skiing.

    There are several miles of well-marked trails through thick woods and open fields, with streams and ponds throughout, meaning there’s a good variety of habitat for about 80 kinds of birds at different times of the year (about 20 in winter). You can pick up a free trail map and bird checklist from boxes attached to the signboard at one of the two entrances.

    I’ll add to this tip in the coming weeks – the little I’ve seen so far is beautiful, but winter here is fracking cold... But I think if I were in Lewiston in spring, summer, or fall, I’d be spending a lot of time here.

    The main entrance gate, with parking, is located on Montello Street at the end of Highland Spring Road. Open every day dawn to dusk.

    I didn't venture in as it was half ten in the morning and a bit early for a beer or what ever for me. But it looked interesting all the same.
