  • Falling into the weekend.... Days turn into months, months into years and years into decades! Time certainly seems to be in free fall mode again and this past decade went by as the longest concurrent birding trip of my life 😅 Having my usual suspects - a few have come and gone - brought me to wonder about birds life expectancy... 🐦 In general, larger species such as raptors, albatrosses, and large parrots have longer lifespans, and each bird species may have different life expectancies
🐦 Bird mortality is generally highest in the first year after hatching, and ornithologists estimate that 80-90 percent of baby birds do not live to maturity. 🐦 Life expectancy in birds is closely correlated with size -- the larger the species, the longer it is likely to live. But the relationship is far from exact. Some groups of birds tend to have long lives for their sizes, especially the Procellariiformes (tubenoses -- albatrosses, shearwaters, and petrels) and Charadriiformes (shorebirds, gulls and terns, and auks). Other groups, for instance titmice and chickadees, wrens, and game birds, are shorter-lived than their sizes would predict 🐦here are some long lived recorded species:
✨ There are a number of incredible records for bird lifespans, determined by data from banded birds that have been observed multiple times. While these records can change as more birds are banded, and additional data is accumulated, some of the top bird lifespans include:
✨Laysan albatross: 65+ years and still living (the oldest living wild bird on record)
✨Arctic tern: 34 years, 0 months
✨Brown pelican: 27 years, 10 months
✨Great horned owl: 27 years, 7 months
✨Mute swan: 26 years, 9 months
✨Red-tailed hawk: 25 years, 9 months
✨Great blue heron: 23 years, 3 months
✨Sandhill crane: 18 years, 6 months
✨Northern cardinal: 15 years, 9 months
✨American robin: 13 years, 11 months
✨House sparrow: 13 years, 4 months
✨Wild turkey: 12 years, 6 months
✨Killdeer: 10 years, 11 months
✨Eastern bluebird: 10 years, 5 months
