It's wing is in an odd position, does there seem to be a problem with the wing? If it does have an issue with the wing and it can't stay in flight you should do your best to get it to a wildlife care center so they can rehabilitate it and release it back into the wild. You won't e able to do that successfully. They can also ID it for you.
