Go buy a tin of dog food. Better yet, dig up earthworms and slice and crush them into mush. Depending upon the size of the bird, use a toothpick or rounded chopstick and place small bits of wet food on it. The bird should open its mouth and take the food. Only give very small amounts. It is very easy to suffocate them with too much food. Feed just three or four mouthfuls. If the baby is fairly large, feed once per hour. If it is tiny, feed once per half hour. After the feed, VERY CAREFULLY give one or two drops of water. DO NOT open the birds mouth and drop water down it, or squirt it down it, or put any water into the open mouth. It will soffocate. Instead, drop the water around the beak and let it seep into the mouth. Be very careful not to get ANY water into the nostiles, or it will suffocate. Try and keep the bird in the area you found it so the parents can locate it. They will continue feeding and caring for their young even if they have fallen onto the ground. If possible, try to get the baby bird off the ground - away from predators - by building a little nest and attaching it to the nearest tree where you found the baby bird. The parents WILL BE nearby, and they will eventually locate the baby by its chirps. The parents chirp, the baby calls back. If the baby is to weak to chirp, do your best to keep feeding it in the location of where you found it and watch for the parents. The parents will be likely flying about looking for the baby, and should come to it in about an hour's time provide they do not see you or anything else threatening.
