'Australian raptors start fires to flush out prey'. The article dates back to Jan 2018. Sorry cant cut and paste will link it later but apparenty they pick up smouldering sticks and grass and drop them elsewhere. How many times has it been said we are the only species to use fire? An exception to every rule! Catch a mouse the easy way. Thought it was too interesting not to share.

Interesting, didn’t know this. There are species of trees like the Jack Pine that have serotinous cones which rely on naturally occurring forest fires to open up and release seeds.

Wild prairie fires helped create Iowa's black, high organic soils. The char left after the fire is carbon that bacteria can't easily break down. That is why some soils are still black after 150 years off arming.
