Wisdom still endures

Wisdom, the oldest known wild bird, has yet again successfully hatched a chick on Midway Island. She is 67 years old, and most Laysan Albatrosses only successfully nest every other year, yet this is Wisdom's 13th successful hatch in a row. Chandler Robbins, the citizen scientist who first banded her, and then found her again 46 years later, died last year at the age of 98, still working with birds until the last at Patuxent Research Refuge.
