OK That's it. We're Done

The hawks have learned to use fire.

"At or around an active fire front, birds – usually black kites, but sometimes brown falcons – will pick up a firebrand or a stick not much bigger than your finger and carry it away to an unburnt area of grass and drop it in there to start a new fire,” says Bob Gosford, an ornithologist with the Central Land Council in Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory, who led the documentation of witness accounts. "It’s not always successful, but sometimes it results in ignition.” 


Evolution is amazing. We know birds can use tools. Now they're using fire. I'm sure this has implications.
