Every year she flies so far nearly thousand miles. After travelling thousands of kilometres she returned to her home to raise a chick. When she is out her mate would protect the egg and sits on the egg. Bob Peyton, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) project leader for Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge and Memorial said that from the past six decades, albatross has raised at least 30 to 35 chicks. It lays one egg per one year.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), the albatross takes approximately seven months to incubate the egg and to raise the chick to young bird.

Kate Toniolo, deputy superintendent for the marine national monument said “It’s just rare, unique and uncommon that we have a bird that we know as the world’s oldest wild bird that still reproducing at the age of 67.
