Wise old bird

Wisdom is a Laysan albatross who makes her home in the U.S. National Wildlife Refuge on the Midway Atoll in the North Pacific between Hawaii and Japan. She has been followed since 1956 and now – sporting the 6th band on her leg – is declared by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to be the oldest bird they have recorded in the wild. Wisdom has been around the block and is estimated to have traveled at least 2 to 3 million miles in her lifetime. She has "been around" in other ways, too, and hatched another chick – possibly her 35th – earlier this month (IMAGE ABOVE)!
