When I'm sixty-four: world's oldest tracked bird returns to refuge with mate

The world’s oldest living tracked bird has returned to US soil to lay an egg at the sprightly age of 64. Wisdom, a Laysan albatross, was spotted at the Midway Atoll national wildlife refuge with a mate, following a year’s absence. It’s expected that Wisdom will use the world’s largest nesting albatross colony, located north-west of Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean, to raise another chick.
