At 64 years of age Wisdom, a Laysan albatross, is the world’s oldest known banded bird in the wild. These large seabirds range across the North Pacific and have unusually long lives, but most are typically dead by forty.
Last month Wisdom returned to Midway Atoll with her current boyfriend Mr. Goo. Shortly after her arrival, Wisdom laid an egg.
