The Attu Island Patch for those who've 'experienced' the emotions / memories / weather / birding of Attu Island, Alaska


Attu Island is the most remote, most westward island in Alaska’s Aleutian chain.
Lying at 538N, 1738E, the island is situated with Anchorage, Alaska, 1920 km to the
northeast and the city of Petropavlovsk on the lower Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia
nearly 960 km to the west. The island is 67 km long and 26 km across at its widest
point and includes approximately 400 km2 of land area dominated by high mountains
and largely inaccessible wilderness area. The only roads and habitation are in
the southeast corner of the island where there is a small coast guard station and
runway and a rudimentary road system left over from an abandoned military base.
Attu Island has three major claims to fame: 1) its generally miserable weather, 2)
the bloody battle fought by U.S. troops in 1943 to recapture the island in World
War II, and 3) the remarkably rich mix of Eurasian bird species that can be found
on the island during spring (and fall) migration.
