62 Year-old Laysan Albatross Still Laying Eggs

The U.S. Forest Service announced that Wisdom the Laysan Albatross returned to Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge! They report

Wisdom laid her newest egg on November 29, 2013 – exactly a year and one day since she laid her last egg! She and her mate are currently brooding the egg. Wisdom is the oldest banded, wild bird in the world and has nested consecutively at the refuge since 2008. Wisdom’s continued contribution to the albatross population is remarkable and important.
