Hi,
Unless you want to take it to a wildlife care center the best thing to do for the pretty little fellow is to put him back where you found him and let nature take it course. I say "him" because of his brighter colors. Without knowing if or how he is injured there is nothing you can do for it. Human captivity will terrify him and can do more harm. Do you know what it's natural diet is? He could be a seed eater or an insect eater. Birds survive cold winter weather so not to worry about it being cold as long as it hop he will seek shelter from the weather. If you do decide to keep it in a cage be certain he is in a dark place that is totally silent. But this NOT a good idea you can't tame a wild bird and it will most likely die.

How long was it on the ground? I have a silly Starling that doesn't fly away and only hops from me all the time. I thought it was injured too but several hours later it flew away. It keeps coming back and doing the same thing.

The best thing to do is to take him to your local Audubon Society and they will take excellent care of him and then release him
