United States of America
On a world map Attu Island marks the westernmost point of the United States. It is also the site of the only WWII battle fought on North American soil. More than three thousand five hundred American and Japanese soldiers lost their lives at the aptly named Massacre Bay on Attu’s southeastern coast. Today the island is an ornithologist’s paradise visited by an array of birds migrating through as they come or go to Asia with the seasons. Peregrine Falcons, Lapland Longspur and Aleutian Canada Goose might be spotted in the summer months.
