We found a crow pecking at a bird in the yard just now. It’s legs are completely broken, we managed to chase the crow off and brought it back inside. It’s bleeding from the legs, I suspect. We provided water. What should we do to make sure it survives?? Help please! Thank you!

Can it not use it's legs at all ?
It might live with some assistance from you, but if it's legs are mangled
It can't go back to the wild
Agreed! If you have a wildlife rehabilitator, take it there. Audubon Society perhaps? Fish and Wildlife? If the legs are broken, they would have to be carefully splinted and the bird cared for while it recovered, which is best left to experts.
I can't tell without seeing the bottom/sides of the bird - what kind of bird is it?
