Narrative

Probablemente el destacamento al mando de J. Gunnar Andersson de la Expedición Antártica Sueca que se desarrolló en los años, 1901-1904, fue el primero en verla. En 1945 fue cartografiada por el FIDS quien le dio este nombre por su posición relativa con respecto a las islas Águila y Beak. Isla de forma circular de casi 1 milla de diámetro y 474 metros de altura, está situada a 1 milla al W de isla Cola en el extremo NE del canal Príncipe Gustavo.
