Hours of nursing this orphaned squirrel and numerous phone calls by @mikepdoran later we finally found a kind lady 40 minutes away to nurse this little guy back to health. We shall mark 4/24 as the day I learned I wanna be a #wildliferehabilitator ... #orphan #babysquirrel #meltedheart #wildliferehab #cantikeepit

Our baby squirrel is in good hands (literally) and is much more awake than in our last post about our squirrel patients. 🐿

A few hours ago this Virginia Rail was picked up in Fort Collins by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator who is also on our board of directors. It is suspected that the bird flew into a window. The rail is currently undergoing treatments for mild brain swelling due to blunt force trauma, and will be transported to a wildlife rehabilitation center in Longmont early tomorrow morning to continue rehab. If you'd like to donate to help not only this bird, but others in similar situations visit: www.nocowildlife.org and click on the "Donate Now" button! #wildlife #wildliferehab #theyneedyourhelp #donate

Usually when #birds sleep they turn their heads and tuck their beaks into the #feathers on their back, as this little male House #Sparrow demonstrates. He has a serious head injury from hitting a window and has trouble with balance so this #nest was a perfect spot for a nap after his medication. #bedtime #wildlife #wildliferehab #songbird #rescuenests #salthavenwest

Some rescues are close to home! This Northwestern Salamander was rescued by our Wildlife Technicians after he got trapped in a crack in the cement stairwell at our administration building. Staff were able to gently chisel away at the hole and with the help of lube slowly free the dehydrated and lethargic salamander in a one hour long rescue. The salamander is recovering well and after a few days should be ready to return home. At least he won't have far to travel to his release location! #salamander #allcreaturesgreatandsmall #amphibian #wildlife #wildliferescue #wildliferehab #wildliferescuebc #thedodo #rescue #animalrescue #closetohome #burnaby #burnabylake

Last week we had an unexpected visitor! Thursday night brought on some heavy rain and wind. We woke up on Friday to find this cute little baby huddled beside our home! We named her Delilah Rose (yes, we know she could actually be a he 😊). We watched this little thing scamper and try to climb and find food. She was so tiny that she looked like a chipmunk! We didn't bother her in hopes that her mama would come and find her. We live in a heavily wooded area but don't see squirrels often, surely she had a family somewhere! Delilah wasn't scared by Declan yelling in excitement and she just sat there alone. We left her with a lid full of peanuts to help her belly and hoped she'd find her home when we were away at school. A few hours passed and she still didn't find her way. Have you ever Googled how to rescue an abandoned baby squirrel?!?! I did everything from contemplate raising it, walked through the yard staring at the trees looking for nests (we have at a ton), and trying to not get attached. Thankfully Pittsburgh has an amazing Wildlife Rescue that was able to help! We gently wrapped her in a bright pink towel and she quickly snuggled in to get warm. She slept curled up in a ball that fit into the palm of my hand until Sam came home. Bailey and Declan were sad to see Delilah go but were happy to know that she was going somewhere that could help her grow into a big strong squirrel! We are all still thinking about Delilah and have been taught never to take anything for granted. This baby squirrel lost its nest and family, had no way to survive, but trusted us enough to care for it just until we knew what to do. Nature and nurture were able to come together and create an awesome memory for all of us. My kids love knowing that Delilah is visiting #irwintheporcupine and all of his other friends! @irwintheporcupine #pghanimalswin #pittsburghpa #squirrelsofinstagram #pittsburgh #wildliferehab #family #memoriesforlife

Unfortunately, we got in two Easter throw away animals - a domestic duck and goose. They are bonded and obviously the cutest things ever but we are limiting interaction to try and keep them as wild as possible (I took this video from behind the curtain while filling up the tub for a swim). They will most likely be transfered to the Waterfowl Center for permanent placement. Please don't get animals as gifts if you do not plan on taking care of them!!! #wildlife #wildliferehab #duck #goose #waterfowl

Typiskt april-väder!! ❄
Rådjuren kom travandes mot mig och tittade sig förbryllade omkring... Likaså fåglarna kvittrade förtvivlat runt om mig.. Precis som jag så var ingen glad för denna snöyra som plötsligt kom.
Fixade både mat och vatten till alla djuren som vart så glada.
Får hoppas denna snö och kyla bara är tillfällig.

Även om djuren är mycket duktiga på att behärska väderomväxlingar så kan de ändå komma som en chock för dem. Och speciellt nu när de har ungar. Det är både harpaltar, ekorrungar, rävungar och sälkutar som kommit. Även fåglarna har börjat komma igång med häckningen.
Stöter du på en djurunge och situationen inte känns att stämma rätt till - Kontakta viltrehabiliterare på än gång innan du agerar, så inget går fel till!
🐦 Jag finns på Djurens Ös journummer 070 227 88 87 (hjälper till med råd, hänvisning, tar emot vid akutfall när jag är i Stockholm)
🐇 www.viltakuten.se (inom Stockholm)
🐿 http://www.kfv-riks.se/medlemmar (lista på viltrehabiliterare inom hela Sverige)

PS. Jag kommer här nu att lägga ut en mer utförlig information när det gäller de djurungar som är som mest aktiva nu - harpaltar, ekorrungar, sälkutar och rävungar - Håll utkik!

Varma kramar // Nina

Little Alex came in today. If you find a baby squirrel, keep looking in that area for the next few days. There are usually more, and they may not all show up at the same time. #wildliferehab #sciuruscarolinensis #greysquirrel #poughkeepsiepaws

This porcupette was admitted a couple days ago and we have all fallen in love. She was already habituated when she came to us so unfortunately is not releasable, but we're working hard to find her a home with a suitable educational facility. In the meantime we're getting her used to bottle feeding, and making sure she grows up big and strong.
Did you know porcupines are good swimmers? One of their favorite treats are water lilies!
P.s. baby porcupines are born with quills but we've been trained how to handle them so we don't get quilled. Don't pick up a porcupette!
