At Chakula Plains, a flaming stick falls from the sky as Ono notices this ambush while observing a herd of giraffes. Twiga and the herd of giraffes are worried about the falling fire, thinking the fire is linked to the army of Scar. Kion tells Bunga, Fuli, Ono, and Beshte to take care of the fire falling from the sky while telling Fuli to escort the giraffes to safety. Escorting the giraffes to safety, Bunga, Fuli, Ono, and Beshte manage to clear away the fire falling from the sky. As Twiga, the lead giraffe, sighs in relief and leaves after surviving the fire falling from the sky, Kion realizes that Scar is behind this devious plan. Kion tries to think of any idea who knows about the falling fire to which he explains that whenever he flies from the sky, a flaming stick always falls behind him and nearly kills him. Ono tries his best to fly high to search who is behind the devious plan of the fire falling from the sky. Ono then plans to do his best to fly high to search for the cause of the fire falling of the sky while the Lion Guard goes on patrol to take care of the fire.
As Ono looks at the flaming sticks, he realizes that they are coming from above the clouds and Ono cannot fly higher like what another bird does. Having taken care of the fire, Ono tells the Lion Guard that he cannot fly higher than any other bird due to him being an egret. Beshte then realizes someone who can fly higher than an egret to which he knows the bird who can fly higher than an egret is Anga (who is also a bird). Beshte explains to Bunga that Anga is a martial eagle to which Ono explains that a martial eagle can fly higher than any other bird. Beshte then realizes that Anga does not talk much to which the Lion Guard decides to find and talk to Anga.
Meanwhile, the Guard continues their journey to find and talk to Anga. While looking at the sky, Bunga thinks it's another flaming stick falling from the sky to which Ono sees a martial eagle in the sky which Beshte says that the martial eagle must be Anga whom the Guard is looking for. Calling out her name, the martial eagle Anga arrives to the spot where the Lion Guard is at. As the martial eagle arrives towards the Guard, Beshte introduces himself to Anga to which she knows that the group of animals she is talking to is the Lion Guard. While Bunga tries to talk to her, Fuli explains why she flies almost directly to them to which Anga explains that this is how she lands. Asking Anga to find someone who can fly higher than a martial eagle, Kion gets no response from her as Beshte thinks she can be helpful to fight solve the problem just as the Guard gets no response from her. Ono then talks to Anga about trying to help to which she agrees to help before Ono finishes talking. Ono then tells the Guard to know if Anga could do it to which Fuli tells him that it sounds like Anga agreed to help the Guard. When Anga is asking the Guard when they can start finding out who is causing the fire to fall from the sky, Ono sees more flaming sticks falling over Embamba Canyon. The Lion Guard, with the help from Anga, decides to go to Embamba Canyon to figure out the problem about the fire falling from the sky. On their way to Embamba Canyon, Kion tells Ono and Anga to know where the fire sticks are coming from just as the rest of the Guard plans to take out the fire. Flying together win Anga, she does the plan for him to which he tells her whatever Anga finds, she should report them back to him.
Anga then sees another flaming stick and sees a flock of vultures who are the the ones dropping flaming sticks. Just as Mzingo realizes the other vultures about seeing the eagle from the distance in a plan to fight back against the Guard, Anga then plans to return to Ono to report him about the flock of vultures Anga saw. Back to the Lion Guard, Ono tells Anga to report to the Guard to which she reports that the flock of vultures are ones dropping flaming sticks. Ono explains that the reason why the vultures are hard to spot is because vultures can fly very high than an egret to which Kion realize that the Scar must have set up this plan to destroy the Pride Lands just as the Lion Guard and Anga plan to stop the vultures from burning the Pride Lands to which in order to fight off the vultures, they need any reinforcements that has the ability to fly, which are birds and the birds must come together in order to fight back against the vultures. Ono then realizes that someone who can assemble a squadron of birds to which he knows it is Hadithi to which Anga feels interested about Hadithi. Kion then explains that whenever Hadithi goes, the squadron of birds follow him. Beshte explains that the last time he heard about Hadithi is when he and the squadron of birds were hanging out with him at the Urembo River. Kion then tells Ono to find Hadithi and talk to him to help fight against the vultures. After thanking Anga for helping the group, Anga then changes her mind to find Hadithi and talk to him.
Ono and Anga fly together to find Hadithi and talk to him to assemble a squadron of birds. While talking with Ono, she explains that any eagle can swoop and stop. Anga then sings to teach Ono how to fly high like Anga. While singing, Ono learns to fly high like Anga as Ono gets used to flying high just like her. After singing, Anga and Ono arrive at the Urembo River where Ono sees Hadithi talking to a squadron of birds where he tells them he rescued the klipspringers from the hyenas. Ono then asks Anga let him introduces her to Hadithi. Hadithi talks to Ono that he was telling the story about their adventures, telling the squadron of birds to meet Ono, the hero of the Pride Lands. While introducing Anga to Hadithi, he explains that any friend of Ono is a friend of his to which Anga is excited to meet him introducing Hadithi to Ono. Asking Ono about what problem is he talking about, he explains that the Lion Guard needs him to help fight against the vultures in order to protect the Pride Lands from danger. Meanwhile, Bunga spots Ono flying with Anga and Hadithi arriving along with the squadron of birds. Kion thanks Hadithi for arriving to help the Guard to which he tells the excited birds to keep the noise level down to which the birds don't stop squawking about their excitement. Hadithi quiets down the noisy birds where he tells them that Kion has a report to tell them. Kion tells the squadron of birds that the vultures are the ones dropping flaming sticks to destroy the Pride Lands once again. Hadithi tells the birds about what Kion said as he plans to fight against the vultures and not mess with the birds in the Pride Lands.
Meanwhile, Anga sees some smoke trails in the sky to which Ono knows the smoke is coming from the flaming sticks dropped by the vultures heading for the Maumivu Thorn Patch. Kion tells the birds to stop the vultures from burning the thorn patch just as Hadithi leads the birds to protect the Pride Lands just as Anga and Ono follow Hadithi just as the Lion Guard arrives at the thorn patch. On their way to the thorn patch, Anga sees the vultures approaching just as Mzingo commands the vultures to burn the thorn patch to which Mwoga tells him that he sees a large flock of birds approaching the vultures. Mzingo commands the vultures to fly higher than the approaching birds. In an attempt to avoid Hadithi's flock of birds, Anga hits the vultures just as Hadithi commands the birds to attack.
Meanwhile at Maumivu Thorn Patch, the vultures drop flaming sticks on the thorn patch just as the Lion Guard works together to extinguish the flaming sticks while the birds fight against the vultures while Hadithi tells the bee-eaters to help Ono fight against Mwoga, causing him to drop the flaming stick directly into the thorn patch. Bunga and Fuli work together to extinguish the flaming stick. Thinking that the vultures are retreating back to the Outlands, Ono explains to Hadithi that the vultures are returning to the volcano to replace the fire sticks they lost, just as Ono, Anga, Hadithi, and the bee-eaters plan to stop the vultures from getting more fire sticks. During battle, Mwoga strikes Anga, causing her to fall off just as Ono and Hadithi work together to save her from falling into the thorn patch. However, two vultures strike Hadithi, causing him to fall into the thorn patch. In a plan to stop the vultures, Hadithi explains to Ono he can't help at this moment due to him stuck in one of the thorns. Anga tells Ono to lead the birds just as she and Ono work together to believe in what Hadithi says. Talking to the squadron of birds, they follow him just like what they did with Hadithi. The birds, led by Ono with the help from Anga, surround the vultures just as the Pride Land birds clear out for Kion to use the Roar of the Elders against the vultures. Kion uses it and blasts them back to the Outlands.
Having fended off the vultures, Hadithi frees himself from the thorn patch, praising Ono and Anga for doing his task. Praising the birds of the Pride Lands for their help, Anga feels satisfied of herself with the teamwork she made with Hadithi, his squadron of birds, and the Lion Guard as she starts getting used to the importance of teamwork and socializing with other animals.
