Caption: Wisdom, a banded Laysan albatross thought to be at least 60 years old, feeds her chick after returning from fishing at sea on the evening of March 20, 2011. This is the first time she has been photographed at the nest since the March 10 tsunami. The chick taps on its mother's beak, stimulating Wisdom to regurgitate a broth of partially-digested fish and squid. Widsom's mate shares the feeding duties.
