The Abandoned Naval Base Hiding On An Alaskan Island Is A Birder’s Paradise

Alaska itself may be considered a birder’s paradise, as we have 525 recorded avian species! There’s one fabulous spot, however, where you can find some incredibly rare species you usually only see in Asia. And you won’t believe where that spot is!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
