Thumbs up 65 yr old Albatros lays another egg!

Wisdom, the oldest known bird in the wild, hatches her 40th chick at Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge in Hawaii.

"Wisdom is an iconic symbol of inspiration and hope," says refuge manager Robert Peyton. He adds that Wisdom is breaking records in terms of longevity, surpassing previously banded birds by at least 10 years.

Wisdom is said to have raised about 40 chicks throughout its life, with at least eight since 2006.

What an amazing life she has had. I wonder what changes she has seen in the world in all that time?
