The squirrels are all released, but not before eating a few keys off my computer one excuse for not posting sooner!), and the ducklings (the little duck mentioned previously ended up back here with 3 others) have been transferred to places with more extensive facilities, but Wild Things is full of babies: fawns, skunks, raccoons, groundhogs, bunnies, etc.!
Here's a cute picture to see you through until my nest, hopefully longer post. This is one of the little White tailed deer fawns growing up at Wild Things. Instead of being shy, this little girl was found repeatedly trying to enter the Ithaca YMCA. It's likely that people were trying to raise her and then put her back outside, as fawns are usually not this social! She is doing really well and has few buddies, but it's tough trying to de-socialize deer. Hopefully after a few months in the Wild Woods she will become more shy with people; an overly social adult deer who weighs 150+lbs is not a good thing.
OK, off to feed a bunch of hungry crying babies!
