Orioles, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Lark Sparrows and other open-habitat birds live at this Refuge unit in Carver County, south of the town of Carver. We’ll also check out the swallows flying over the Minnesota River and see what’s on Rapids Lake. We’ll bring extra binoculars and a scope. If you have a scope, please bring it for viewing the lake.
