What To Do if You Find a Baby Animal in Your Yard

When spring rolls around our backyards come alive with birds, squirrels, rabbits, and other wildlife native to your area. They’re soon followed by their young offspring who they’re working tirelessly to feed and raise. Many a well-intentioned homeowner has stumbled upon a baby bird or squirrel in their yard and moved them in an attempt to rescue them. Unfortunately, this often does the animal more harm than good.

Whether you’ve just come across a lone baby animal in your yard or you want to be prepared for when it happens, this article will tell you everything you need to know to make the right decision.

Knowing when to interfere

The most important takeaway from this article is that just because a baby animal is alone does not mean they need your help. The parents of these animals have a hard job. They’re trying to feed and rear their offspring while modeling behavior that will help them eventually care for themselves.

If you take a baby bird or other animal from its home and attempt to care for it there are several things that could go wrong.

  1. It could die. We are not adept at raising baby animals who sometimes require very specific diets and feeding times that humans cannot provide for.
  2. It might become dependent upon you. This isn’t usually a good thing. Wild, undomesticated animals aren’t meant to be kept as pets. Furthermore they’ll develop trust of humans which can harm them later on.
  3. It will miss out on important lessons from its mother. Birds and other animals learn through imprinting. Without gaining this vital survival knowledge from its parents a baby animal won’t survive on its own for long.

When to help

There are certain instances when it is okay to interfere. Again, finding an animal alone is not sufficient cause for concern. Its mother might be away gathering food or is hiding nearby waiting for you to go away before it returns to its young.

If you happen upon a baby animal alone leave it be but keep an eye on the situation from afar. If several hours pass by and the baby is still alone it might be time to step in. Depending upon the animal, babies can be alone for a range of time per how often they need to feed or drink.

 

In some situations it is absolutely okay to step in. Some such scenarios include:

  • the animal is bleeding
  • the animal has an obvious broken limb
  • you find the animal’s parent dead nearby
  • the animal has been crying and wandering for hours
  • a featherless baby bird is on the ground alone for several minutes
  • your cat or dog brings the baby animal to you

How to help

Once you’ve determined that the baby animal is truly in need, it’s time to carefully tend to it. Put on gloves and gently place the animal into a safe, warm, and ventilated container.

Now that the animal is in a safe place, call your local animal hospital for further instruction. If they are closed, research a reputable website online that can tell you how to care for the specific species until the animal hospital opens the next day.

The Don’ts in Negotiating a Home

When you are looking at buying a home there are don’ts you should be aware of. Many times the handling of the negotiation can mean the difference in huge amounts of money. This is why it is vital to have an experienced agent on your side. Here are just a few common pitfalls to avoid.

 

Not doing your homework

Doing your homework is important in such a large purchase. Ask your agent for a list of comparable homes recent sale prices. Look to see how long comparable listings have been on the market and what the average sale to list price ratio is. This will give you the information you need when making an offer and negotiating a final sale price.

Not understanding the seller

Try to look at the deal from the opposite side of the table. A sale is typically emotional for a seller. When making an offer try not to insult the seller, offering a fair and realistic offer to purchase will typically get you further in the negotiations. If you know the seller’s motivations for selling you may also be able to offer terms that might be more attractive like a quick close or inspection.

Showing your cards

While you want to know as much about the seller as possible divulge as little about yourself in the negotiation as possible. Any knowledge the seller has about your motivation can be used as leverage in the negotiation.

Getting your heart set

Buying a home can often be an emotional process. Identify several properties you’d be happy with as well. Be careful not to get your heart in the way of your head as it can sometimes hinder the deal.

Trying to win

In a sale there needs to be two ingredients: a seller who wants to sell and a buyer who wants to buy. Try not to getting caught up in the game. Ultimately it is about buying a home and not winning a negotiation.
