Yesterday while I was outside I found a baby bird in the middle of the road! It was by its self and didn’t want to move. I waited to see if the mother would come for it but never did. I also didn’t find any nest nearby. What do I feed it?! I don’t know what breed it is, it’s brown with white feathers. And has a brown belly.

Hi, yes it looks like a Robin. Look for it's nest and if you are able to find it, the best thing you can do is to lay the little bird under the tree and it's parents will care for it. There's not much you can do. If you can't find the nest, you can move it to a safe place where the parents will find it and supply water but don't force feed it.

It is a huge commitment to raise such a young bird and you would need to have a lot of experience to keep it alive. It you were to keep it alive you wouldn't be able to release it and that would be illegal.

It looks like a baby robin. Its nest must be nearby in a tree or shrub; unless a larger bird dropped it while stealing it from its nest.
