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.

OH noes!!!!!!!
I'm so terribly sorry.
But you did the best you possibly could have without a vet's help. You might want to put it outside for a little while in the morning so that it's mate understands why it isn't coming back.
in the meantime *comforting hugs for elly*
