As if we don’t have enough to worry about, news is spreading on Facebook that birds in Australia are starting/spreading fires by picking up embers intentionally, flying over to fire-free areas, and dropping the burning sticks. And here’s the kicker: it looks like the birds are starting these fires intentionally to drive out prey from hiding places so that they can feast on them.

So is it true? Let’s start with an initial task. Go to the site, and see if the site (which looks like a newspaper) is a legitimate newspaper or a fake site. Submit your proof that it is fake or real, trustworthy or dubious in the comments. Provide links to evidence.

When done, if you have the password you can move to the solution.
