The oldest known bird in the world is 70 years old and just had another baby.

Mar 6th

At 70 years of age, Wisdom the albatross just had another chick even though she's the world's oldest wild bird.

The typical lifespan of her species is only 12-40 years.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service says she laid the egg on Midway Atoll in the Pacific back in November and that it hatched in February.

Researchers first found Wisdom in 1956, and she's had somewhere between 30-36 chicks in her lifetime.

That's pretty dang impressive.
