I'm not sure how it got in, but it can't fly (it does have feathers). The kids found it in the tub. I have moved him (or her, who knows) to a box, but I have no idea what to do with it. If I put it outside I'm sure he will become cat food. Any suggestions?
Call a rehabber ~ http://www.wildliferehabber.org/st_disp_list.php
It may take a few hours for one to get back to you, but they will call. This is a busy time of year. In the meantime, offer the bird room temp pedialyte (or a homemade mix) ~ no food. Digestion uses up too much energy if a bird is stressed or injured. If you get a call back and they can't pick it up until tomorrow, ask them what to offer as food at that point. Just keep them in a box in a quiet room for the time being.
And, if you have old towels, sheets, blankets, newspapers, or some spendy cash around, ask if they need anything!
