The Aleut story: resilience and revival

I’d been lured to St. Paul Island by the promise of adventure and world-class wildlife viewing. Birders come to Alaska’s Pribilof Archipelago on the chance that they will spot rare Asian “vagrants” seldom seen elsewhere in North America. The draw is big enough that people pay thousands of dollars to spend a few raw, wet, and windy days on this tiny volcanic landmass in the Bering Sea.
