They say wisdom comes with age!
So it makes sense that the oldest living bird is named…Wisdom!!
Wisdom is a Laysan albatross type of bird, and is around 62 years old!!!
Which means she should be collecting her social security check very soon!! Ha!
She recently hatched her sixth chick in a row, and has possibly hatched over 30 in her whole lifetime!!
Although the Laysan albatross live pretty long anyway - Wisdom has outlasted all of her other bird peers, by living twice as long as them!!!
The biggest risk to this type of bird is if they eat plastic in the ocean, so make sure you recycle and give Mother Earth the respect that she deserves.
If Wisdom can live another twenty years - she'll break the world record which is held by an 82 year old Siberian White Crane.
Keep on truckin', Wisdom - we believe in you!
