baby morning dove found in the garage

I found a baby morning dove in the garage. I picked it up and gently placed it in a hanging planter basket. This basket was previous used (March)for a morning dove female with her 2 eggs. I tried feeding it soften cracker w/water. It ate it, but now it is crying. There are 2 sets of morning doves in the area. One flew in and it seemed it was pecking at the baby. I was concerned it was trying to kill it, since I handled it? Will the mother come back and feed the baby?
