If I Find A Baby Squirrel What Do I Do? If you find a baby squirrel that has fallen out of a tree and it is not injured, leave it at the base of the tree.
The mother squirrel can pick it up and carry it back to the nest when everything is quiet. If there are flies or ants around or if the baby seems sick or
injured, wrap the baby up with a towel and put the baby and towel in a small ventilated box with a cover so it will feel secure and to stay warm to reduce
stress. Call or bring it to a licensed rehabilitation facility for care.
Do not attempt to feed or give liquids as this could cause more problems for the baby
and even death.

If I Find A Baby Bird What Do I Do? Look around and see if you can find a nest or the mother.
If you see anyone of them, try to put the baby back into the nest. If you cannot, leave the baby on
the ground. Touching the baby will not bring harm to it. If the mother has not return after a couple of
hours, or if you think the baby is injured or is in harm's way, put the baby in a small ventilated box
with a cover to keep it warm and to reduce shock. Call or bring it to a licensed rehabilitation facility
for care.
Do not attempt to feed or give liquids as this could cause more problems for the baby
and even death.
