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..

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.
Yes, it is an amazing bird.
