Trick to Save a Baby Squirrel: Using Audio to Get Them Back to Their Nest
- Rescuing orphaned or injured wild animals can be challenging, but with the right approach, you can help them.
- Getting a baby squirrel back to its nest can be accomplished by using audio cues.
- Start by locating the squirrel’s nest, which is usually in a tree cavity or a nest box.
- Place a speaker near the nest and play recordings of baby squirrel distress calls, which will attract the squirrel’s attention.
- Continue playing the distress calls gradually louder to guide the baby squirrel closer to its nest.
- Be patient and give the squirrel time to approach the nest on its own.
- Once the squirrel is close to the nest, turn off the distress calls and let the squirrel make its way back.
- Avoid handling the squirrel directly or interfering with its natural instincts.
