Meet Wisdom, the world's oldest known breeding bird. Wisdom, a Laysan albatross who was first tagged on Midway Atoll in the North Pacific in 1956, is more than seventy years old and has just hatched another chick, one of up to 36 chicks she's mothered in her long life. Albatrosses are among the world's most long-lived birds, but Wisdom has lived more than twice the average life span for the breed. As she has every winter Wisdom returned to the Midway archipelago, at the northern tip of the Hawaiian island chain, to give birth and raise her new chick with the help of her mate, Akeakamai, who has been her partner since at least 2012. You can read more about Laysan albatrosses at

This pair, joined on their roost by some cormorants, tarried at the Lake for several days before heading back to the beach.
