I need some help. I just picked up a baby quail from my driveway (we are rural). I did not realize it was a quail or I would have left it for a little while and come back to check on it, because I know that quail are ground dwellers. Anyway, I can't undo that so now I have a baby quail on my hands. I can't be sure of its age but due to size I'm guessing maybe a couple weeks, not newborn (?). My husband and I went looking for a nest but couldn't find one. I need some guidance to keep it alive overnight, then we'll get it to a rescue organization. I have no experience rescuing birds, so anything is helpful. Thanks!
