The oldest bird species still surviving on earth is the Sandhill Crane. A fossil of a 10 million year old sandhill crane was found in Nebraska which means that it has been around since at least the Miocene Age. They are 3-5 feet high, 7-14 pounds, and have a 5-6 foot wingspan. If you want to read up a little bit more on them you can check out the link that I attached.
The oldest wild bird currently is a British albatross clocking in at around 58 years old.
Birds in captivity can live much longer, with domesticated parrots such as macaws and African greys consistently surviving well into their eighties and nineties.
