Attu: Birding on the Edge. A Quarter Century of Birding the Western Reaches of North America
Attu is the westernmost island in the Aleutians, a chain of volcanic islands that belong to Alaska and separate the North Pacific from the Bering Sea. The confluence of weather and geography make it one of the most remarkable birding destinations in the world. Storms from the southwest cause migratory birds to take shelter on Attu and are likely to be birds seldom seen elsewhere in North America. This book is a compilation of the writings and photographs of many individuals who have spent time on the island.
