About this book

The Aleutian Islands provide nesting sites for millions of seabirds and landfall for a broad spectrum of intercontinental and transoceanic migrants.

In Birds of the Aleutian Islands, authors Gibson and Byrd provide an up-to-date scholarly analysis and discussion of avian distributions and occurrence in this remote archipelago at the beginning of the 21st century. They include an inventory of archived avian specimens, references to published and archived photographs, a list of species reported from but not substantiated in the Aleutians, a gazetteer of Aleutian islands, and colour photos illustrating habitats and endemic taxa.

This volume has been described as one of the most significant books ever published on Alaska's birds, and it will be the major scientific resource for future avian research in northeastern Asia, northwestern North America, and the North Pacific.

Media reviews

This gem of a book is by two of the most knowledgeable and highly-respected ornithologists in Alaska, each of them a world-renowned expert... --IAIN STENHOUSE, PHD, Audubon Alaska

"This book is destined to become the seminal treatise on the avifauna of this transition zone between Asia and North America. It will serve as an invaluable reference for anyone with an interest in the birds that reside on or pass through these windswept islands and surrounding waters, including birders, biogeographers, and conservation biologists... " -- JOHN TRAPP, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (ret.)

"It will be a tremendous benefit to those interested in the ornithology of this extensive region, or the surrounding areas. The authors offer valuable perspectives of some of the most vexing taxonomical uncertainties of this entire area, and do so with sharp clarity. I can't wait to see this in print." --JON DUNN, Field Guide to the Birds of North America (Editor)
