Not sure

I found this small bird sitting in the middle of a parking spot. Olive green on the outer part and yellow belly.It allowed me to pick it up. It seemed in shock at the time but as soon as I got it home,I put it an extra bird cage I had and it just sat there. I don't know what it eats or if I should even keep it. I was a little worried because the temperature just dropped to the 50's and I think this was causing it to not move. I didn't want a cat or grackle to come and eat it. It has started to fly on the bottom of the cage and sing a little. I am located in South Texas (Corpus Christi)

did the birds get separated from the hurricane winds, that disrupted them from migrating to the right path

I found the same exact bird on the floor I picked it up because I didn't want a cat to attack it or something. The poor little thing is sleeping in my hand right now. It won't eat, or fly

your bird is a migrant heading south
by: Anonymous

This bird is migrating south and got stuck. they live along stream valleys. I have seen groups of them migrating along ROck Creek park heading south and they get disoriented easily. I think it is a hooded warbler. Put it back in a south facing stream valley park for further migration

I found a dead bird exactly like yours in Washington DC in the fall. (migrating south I bet). I think it is a hooded warbler.
