does anyone know ANYTHING relating to caring for injured birds???  
looking for some help:

i have this injured bird downstairs in my laundry and i'm not sure what to do with it.

it's a Wompoo Pigeon that flew into one of our windows. it's been sitting outside on our lawn for a good 4 hours - i don't think it's wing's broken but there's something wrong with it. ie. it flew a few feet but then just kind of stopped... maybe a leg? i don't know. but it started to get dark so i carefully wrapped it in a towl and brought it inside (otherwise something will kill it overnight) and i'm going to call our wildlife guy in the morning but what should i do for it tonight??? so far it's sitting in its towel and there's water nearby...

HELP PLEASE!!! i'm not good with wildlife! and this is a beautiful bird

OH NO IT DIED!!! and i can hear it's mate outside calling. i thought it was getting better? now i'm really depressed.

sadly this is a fruit eating bird - which is why it was flying around our fig tree lol - shame that they have such poor eyesight - when it was here last year it flew into our orchid fence and we were like 'dude... you're the first one to do that...'
