Which bird lives the longest?

Answer

The bird with the longest life span is the macaw, a type of parrot that can live to be more than 100 years old. A macaw in captivity can live for up to 70 years.

Other types of parrots also live long lives. Cockatoos and African gray parrots can live to be older than 60, and Amazon parrots can live into their 70s. The Eclectus parrot is known for its lengthy lifespan, with many specimens surviving to be 65 to 85 years of age.

In the wild, the albatross is generally considered to be the longest lived, with some having been found to live for 37 years. The arctic tern also lives into its 30s, barring attacks by predators and other perils.
