Wisdom, The World’s Oldest Known Wild Bird, a mother again at 67!

Wisdom is a Laysan Albatross that nests on Midway Island at the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. She has been nesting there since 1956 since she was banded by Chan Robbins.

After two months of incubation the newest albatross hatched on February 6th.  A belated cigar for Wisdom and her mate, known as Akeakamai.

Over three million sea birds nest in the Midway Atoll each year.
