An Old Bird is a New Mom
ScienceNews.org, February 2013
An albatross named Wisdom is the oldest wild bird in the world.
Most of the time she flies around the Pacific Ocean.
When she's not in the air, she lives on an island near Hawaii.
Most birds like Wisdom live to be 30 years old. Wisdom is 62!
Wisdom is the oldest bird mother ever. At the age of 62, she laid an egg and hatched a healthy baby chick. In total, she has had 35 chicks. That is a lot for an albatross!
No one knows why Wisdom is like this.
