459 HereticalSkeptic Firehawk raptors congregate in hundreds along burning fire fronts, where they will fly into active fires to pick up smouldering sticks, transporting them up to a kilometre (0.6 miles) away to regions the flames have not yet scorched. "The imputed intent of raptors is to spread fire to un-burned locations – for example, the far side of a watercourse, road, or artificial break created by firefighters – to flush out prey via flames or smoke," the researchers write.
262 OhHiGCHQ Looks like Australia needs to declare war on another species of Bird.
76 MesterenR I honestly thought it was a joke. I did not have the imagination to believe birds would actually do that. - But I guess the quest for food will drive all species to crazy things.
68 throughpasser >In this case, do the birds really know what they're doing, or are they only accidentally clutching at (burning) straws? Of course they know what they're doing. What's the reason for the reluctance to recognise intelligence in animals?

17 missjardinera If you haven't read the article, you might not know how much it emphasizes that this is not new information. Indigenous Australians have known about this for thousands of years yet nobody listened to them. >"Though Aboriginal rangers and others who deal with bushfires take into account the risks posed by raptors that cause controlled burns to jump across firebreaks, official skepticism about the reality of avian fire-spreading hampers effective planning for landscape management and restoration," the international team explains in their paper. >While news of aerial arsonists fire-bombing the landscape may seem surprising or even shocking, the researchers are eager to emphasise that this destructive phenomenon has actually been witnessed for untold millennia. >"We're not discovering anything," one of the team, geographer Mark Bonta from Penn State Altoona, told National Geographic. >"Most of the data that we've worked with is collaborative with Aboriginal peoples… They've known this for probably 40,000 years or more."
