When you find orphaned or injured wildlife, it is tempting to pick it up. Don't! Many times orphaned wildlife is perfectly capable of finding their own way home.
When in doubt call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator such as Owl's Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife at (813) 598-5926 or Florida Wildlife Commission.
In the spring, many animals are learning to leave the nest and do not need help. If the animal is obviously injured, bleeding, or there is a dead parent nearby, be sure to call your nearest wildlife rehab.
