    Can you call DNR? Looks like a Robin and around here they are protected because they are migratory.
     
  3. Most young birds are much harder to take care of than chicks - they are used to being fed by their parents. You can't just put them in a box with some food and water; they have to be hand fed. For a robin, that would mean bugs, grubs, ants, etc. If you can, try to get a wild life center that will help you out!
