with about a 16 feet drop on concrete! I fed him some dried mealworms and did the best i could at making him a little nest, what do i do? It was not my idea to bring him home. My dad brought him and couldn’t reach to the nest to put him back, so now i have to take care of this little baby bird. Im going to try and see if i can get help, but for the meanwhile i need help.
 
Can it stand? You will need heat first of all then water with electrolytes. I have no idea what to feed it but get it warm and go from there
I don’t think so. Or not very well. Im using tissue to help support it because the legs are very spread out.

it shaking and bobbing its head up and down, and breathing heavily.

What measurements should i do?

Poor thing. I have no clue how to care for a wild baby bird this young, i doubt it will survive.

No. It cannot stand. I slightly took away some tissue slowly and it was flopping over.
 
Do you have a heating pad? I would make a nest with towel on top of a heat pad. Then use a syringe to feed it chick feed mash with mealworms, electrolyte water, and a bit of Nutri Drench. Keep in mind that he may not have "fell". Mom or Dad may have pushed him out because he is not healthy.
