Which species of bird can live the longest?

US Fish and Game officials found a 60-year-old Laysan albatross (Gooney Bird) in February, seemingly surprised at her longevity. She ha dbeen banded for tracking eight times sine 1956 and still hatching eggs. She hatched a chick on Midway Atoll near Hawaii in mid-February before the earthquake and tsunami disaster struck Japan. This is th enow-famous Wisdom the albatross. She hatched her single chick near Hawaii and was transported out by officials after the tsunami splashed onto the Pacific Islands. After that danger passed, she and her chick were returned to their natural habitat. See pictures and story at
