Baby bird found in Brooklyn

by Rebecca
(Brooklyn, NY)

my friend found this tiny bird outside my apartment building. He said he was by himself and limping. He has a rather longish beak, gray fluff around his neck and black/white tail feathers. I thought he was a pigeon, but she said no. any idea what he/she might be? She is trying to get in touch with an animal rescue place here, but most are closed and tomorrow is a holiday.

i think this might be a robin nestling, in bad trouble, try to keep it warm, have liquids maybe from an eyedropper. if it is, give it small parts of earthworms. i put my found ones on soft flannel with a incandescent lamp about a foot away., in a box or cage. this maybe too young to be a fledgling,so don,t expect any orange. the bill is the giveaway, i found a similar one on the university of michigan site, under toxicology site. also, as a childi found one but didn,t know how to care for it, warmth is very important. i lived in utica, ny.

Hard to tell when they are so tiny but we found a batch dumped in a shoe box under our porch (Buffalo, NY( Saturday night and have been nursing them since, they look a little similar. We have done a ton of research trying to find out lol ours are baby grackles we believe yours may be too.
