Hi, The feathers on your bird are all in so it is old enough to fly. The best thing to do is to put the nest back into the tree as high as possible and sit the bird in it. The parent/s will take it from there. If you haven't had the bird away from the nest long they are waiting for it and even if it's been a while they will come back to check so give then 24 hrs or so. You need to get it back soon or give it water immediately.

If they don't come back the best chance this guy has to survive into his/her second year is to take it to a wildlife care center or Audubon, they will know how to feed it and teach it to fend for itself in the wild.
