How long do wild birds live?

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

It’s pretty clear when we humans are aging; gray hair, wrinkles, mysterious creaking noises when getting out of bed in the morning. Those signs make it a lot easier to guess roughly how old we are, but when it comes to wild birds, they lack such obvious clues. So how long do wild birds actually live for?

Techniques such as bird ringing or banding, though not a flawlessly accurate system, have helped scientists along the way in figuring out the answer to that question.
