Baby bird found outside central VA, mostly black with a white speckled chest and a yellow beak. I think it might have a broken wing, I don't really know what to do with it.

Hi, It is a baby but I don't know that it has a broken wing. It probably doesn't have all of it's wing feathers in yet and the best thing you can do is to put it back where you found it,if you haven't had it long the parents are still there looking for it.
