I heard of one of the bravest birds some time ago.. It is a small bird, but if it protects It's children, it is amazing.. Even when an elephant or another animal about the same size goes near her nest, she attacs it.. She does not allow them to get too close to her nest.. The bird is called the Blacksmith Plower..

Some mothers are incredibly brave. And what a pretty bird it is too.

I've seen those birds around here, but only grown up ones so I've never experienced that. But I've seen videos of other bird species standing up to big animals that way. Strangely the birds I've encountered up close (not plovers but birds of a similar size) were far more protective of their eggs than they were of their children.

They have a strong instinct to take care of their offspring - maybe the chickens go and hide by following their own instinct..??

@Hannihar - Maybe the instinct is different in some animals

Birds are very active when it's time to protect their nests. Even the little sparrows attack the cats if they see their babies menaced.

@buenavida You are right, a few days ago I have seen a crow chasing a cat. The cat looked scared.

They have pretty long legs with respect to their size. Seems as they are braver when making nests right on shallow grounds. Perhaps they think it is easier to guard their youngs this way?

Yes, the elephant must be thousands of times bigger than the bird..

Animals are not brave or cowardly. These are human characteristics. Human beings *can* be brave or cowardly or not. They can decide how to behave. Animals must follow their instincts.
