wisdom.darcypattison.com The oldest bird in the world, documented with banding, is Wisdom, the Midway Albatross. She was on Midway when the Japanese Tsunami hit in 2011 and this is her amazing story of survival of manmade and natural disasters for over 60 years. She has survived the dangers of living wild, plastic pollution, longline fishing, lead poisoning, and the Japanese earthquake. At 60, she's still laying eggs and hatching chicks. It's a story of survival and hope amidst the difficulties of life.
