Oldest wild bird in the US has chick at 60!

source


HONOLULU -- The oldest known wild bird in the U.S. is a new mother. A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist spotted the Laysan albatross that's at least 60 years old a few weeks ago.

"She looks great," Peterjohn said in a news release Tuesday. "To know that she can still successfully raise young at age 60-plus, that is beyond words."

The bird, named Wisdom, has likely raised at least 30 to 35 chicks during her life...

With all the dead bird threads lately I feel pretty psyched to be able to post this one!

I hope you all enjoy - I know I do!

What a joy to see life goes on, and triumphs!

peace

Star and flag from me Silo, that's awesome. Like another poster said, never knew birds could live that long. A nice post on an otherwise bleak(ish?) forum.

I'm glad you two likes it... It's a beautiful thing when nature reminds us how she prevails...
Talk about HOPE for everyone - worldwide.
Does this mean we should take 'her' for granted? Absolutely not!
But still, knowing her longevity and endurance combined with such a sense of peace?
Absolutely extraordinary...

peace
