Title: Birds of the Wildest Isle: Expedition Report from St. Matthew Island, Alaska

Description: Learn about the recent Cornell Lab and US Fish and Wildlife Service expedition to St. Matthew Island, Alaska, in the Bering Sea — the most remote wilderness in the United States. Andy Johnson joined Irby Lovette (Fuller Professor of Ornithology at Cornell) and a small team of biologists on the uninhabited island last June. They stayed for a month to study and film the endemic McKay’s Bunting and Pribilof Rock Sandpiper. But on this rarely visited outpost, the team also found signs of a dramatically changing ecosystem.
