    You could take it back out and slip in under its mother- that would probably be the easiest think to do. The poor thing probably got rocking and rolled itself out of the nest- I've had it happen a couple of times. Good luck!

    Once he is warm, he may be ok. Give him a drink once he warms up and put him back in with mom.
