You can go here to read about feeding wild baby birds. Ideally it would be best to put him back into the nest. If you can't find the nest, another option is to find a local nature rehabilitation center.
Good luck,

Looking at where you are from, it is probably actually a Northern Parula.

I believe this bird is probably a Tropical Parula. Occasionally they come through on migration. I do not think it is a baby; it may be an injured or weakened adult. Sometimes birds that are migrating become weak from the stress of flying that far in such a short period of time.
