62-year-old albatross gives birth to chick

2 posts in this topic

She is described as awesome. And wonderful. And maybe a little weird. She is the world's oldest known living wild bird at age 62, and she gave birth to a healthy chick that hatched Sunday.

It's pretty amazing that Wisdom, named by scientists who stuck a tag on her ankle years ago, has lived this long. The average Laysan albatross dies at less than half her age. Scientists thought that, like other birds, albatross females became infertile late in life and carried on without producing chicks.
