Mother Bird Saved Chicks in Yellowstone Fire-Fiction

A forest ranger in Yellowstone finds a bird carcass after a fire, knocks it over, and out runs three baby chicks that were protected by the mother bird’s sacrifice of her own life. The bird is described as having known that there would be toxic smoke higher in the trees, but took her chicks to the base of a tree where she covered them with her wings and saved their lives.
