Identify bird type

Hello,I am a newbie here. Certainly not sure about the procedure to introduce myself BTW I am Naveen.I found this chick under my car parked near field.When I saw it,I just lift it up and it just can't fly,I fed it with bread worm and yes it can eat well and got to feed water with a syringe,guess it fell from its nest before it can fly or ready to fly. Can Anyone tell me what kind bird is this or the type?Thanks in advance.

Re: Identify bird type

Where are you? (In the world, that is). It looks like a cuckoo chick to me, but I'm in Australia.

Re: Identify bird type

You sure his parents aren't around? Baby chicks (fledglings) often spend up to 2 or 3 weeks on the ground with parents nearby-- so if you picked him up, put him back where he was and keep an eye on him for a bit to see if parents return (unless it was days ago).
If it was days, parents likely aren't in the area, but you could try bringing him anyway and get out of site to see if they come around. Don't just leave him at this point, unless you just got him hours ago (because if they did end up leaving, he needed their help to survive). FYI- birds cannot smell things easily (most anyway) so if it hasn't been too long and they see him, they will likely take him back (they won't smell you and reject him), but it depends on where they are now, how long it has been, and how frightening it is for them to come get him--I mean, honestly if he is in a box or something they may be more scared to come around and if they seen you they probably won't either, so if you can watch from a distance, that would be best.

It's normal for fledglings of all sorts to be on the ground without being able to fly--parents come around and feed them, they hide places to stay clear from predators, and then they eventually learn to fly.
He has enough feathers---I imagine his parents were around.

If there is a wildlife rescue near you, or a bird sanctuary-- take him (it's super easy to feed a baby the wrong thing or the wrong way---especially not knowing what he is).

Not an expert on all North American Wild Birds. This one is not a chick of those that I do.
