Wildlife Rehabilitation

"Q: I found a young animal (bird, rabbit, deer, etc.) with no parent nearby. What should I do?
A: Many animals will leave their young alone during the day while they hunt or rest somewhere else. Young birds learning to fly will often spend several days on the ground while their parents continue feeding them and teaching them to fly and find food on their own. Unless a young animal is obviously sick or injured, it is best to keep an eye on it from a distance for several hours or a day to wait for its parents to return. Young birds on the ground can be picked up and put into a shrub or tree or even on the roof (if there is shade) to keep them out of reach of house cats and dogs."
