The group of rocks lying in an aquatory of 25 ha that extends 780 m in W-E direction and 560 m in S-N direction in the Wauwermans Islands group of Wilhelm Archipelago in the Antarctic Peninsula region. Centred 5.27 km S of Host Island, 4.93 km W of Zherav Island, 2.11 km S of the midpoint of Vetrilo Rocks, and 3 km NE of Kalmar Island in the Dannebrog Islands group.
So named because of its shape supposedly resembling a flock of birds in flight, 'yato' being the Bulgarian for 'bird flock', and in association with other descriptive names of islands in the area.
