"Adak, Gambling on Birds"  - Adak Island, Alaska, halfway out the Aleutian Islands chain, attracts Asian strays. Once a military base not open to visitors, the closing of the base in the late 90s enabled birders to gain access. Frank and Barb Haas have been going to Adak in May and September annually since 2005. Join us in hearing about their experiences there.
