New Delhi: The world's oldest known seabird is all set to create history as it is expecting again at the age of 66.

Fondly known as Wisdom, it is incubating an egg at the same nesting the seabird and her mate use each year.

As per reports, the refuge`s oldest resident is also the world`s oldest known breeding bird in the wild.

Wisdom, spotted by biologists earlier this month, has successfully raised and fledged at least nine chicks since 2006. She has travelled an estimated three million miles in her lifetime.

Laysan albatross do not lay eggs every year and when they do they raise only one chick at a time, the contribution of even one bird to the population makes a difference, biologists said.
