Intentional Fire-Spreading by “Firehawk” Raptors in Northern Australia, Bonta et al. Journal of Ethnobiology, 37(4)

"A new study suggests that certain species of birds in Australia have figured out a way to spread fires in order to terrify - and eventually eat - their prey. This terrifying strategy has been observed by aboriginal people for hundreds of years, but only recently did researchers condense these accounts - and modern interviews - into a single paper. The team’s findings were published in the most recent edition of the Journal of Ethnobiology back in November."
