Wisdom is 62 years old, a Japanese tsunami survivor, and a proud new mom. Also, who knew baby albatrosses were so freaking adorable? (via Anna and her mom.)

1. This is Wisdom. She is the oldest known wild bird in the world, and she’s lived on the Midway Atoll since 1956.

2. Anyway, she just had a baby albatross. The baby albatross that she had is ridiculously cute.

3. After the Japanese tsunami, Wisdom disappeared for 10 days, but she returned on the 10th day to feed her chick.

4. Because she is a good mom.

5. OK, let’s take one last look at that baby albatross. I have named him Herman. But you can call him whatever you like.
