    My Uncle found a baby bird outside and does anyone have any idea what breed it is? (sorry if this is the wrong spot to put this)

    I am probably too late to this thread, but it is a juvenile waxwing, which is a species (not a breed, which refers to man-made variations of a domestic animal).
    If by any luck it's still alive, keep it in a low lit area of the house without much commotion. A cardboard box is okay. You can provide water in a very shallow dish but never try to force it to drink. At this age it would probably still be getting a diet high in protein (seed isn't going to work). If you can, get it to a rehabber as soon as possible.

    Best wishes to you both!
     
  4. That's a cedar waxwing fledgling. Try feeding it small berries ( blueberries, cut up strawberries, etc) mashed up.
