In June 1907, Dawson (1908) and others searched for nests at all major islands with habitats suitable for burrow-nesting seabirds (Tatoosh Island, Bodelteh Islands, Carroll Island, Cake Rock, Rounded Island, Alexander Island, Destruction Island and Jagged Island), but they did not report nesting Ancient Murrelets, nor did GC Cantwell, who worked these islands extensively in 1914-1921 (Jewett and others 1953).
Twelve adults and I juvenile were noted near Alexander Island in 1978, but no date was given (Speich and Wahl 1989).
We found another hot spot off the northern end of Alexander Island
, a region of rough bottom topography.
On 7 May, she traveled south to Massey Island, then farther south to Alexander Island, west to Ile Marc, and east back to Alexander Island-all within 19 days.
He traveled north to Massey Island, south to Alexander Island, northeast to Massey Island, then northeast to the northwest coast of Bathurst Island, back west to lie Vanier, then finally onto Cameron Island, all in 27 days.
The female, on the other hand, went directly in less than five days from her winter range on he Vanier to the general location on Alexander Island where she would subsequently calve on about 4 June 1994.
Beall said the Alexander Island location, south of the HSC, afforded Troy's crews enough room for stringing, welding and testing of the three 10-inch pipelines, while Laney's crews set up their drilling rig and equipment spread adjacent to Bayway Drive in Baytown, north of the HSC.
The Alexander Island to Mitchell Point crossing proved to be a typical HDD pipeline installation.
