I would definitely do some research online about caring for baby birds... it helps a lot, and you may find some other good dietary suggestions. :)

:O thank you!! I was having some troubles figuring out about the feeding.. i didn't know i can feed it with dog's food! that would help a lot! :D

make sure it has soft bedding... adding some shredded toilet paper to the newspaper you already have would be optimum.

Just a tip? letting dry cat or dog food get moist in warm water, then tearing it into pieces and feeding it to the bird is a good choice. My mom has raised countless sparrows/robins on that mixture. variety is good, but I would definitely suggest that to start out with. good luck! :)
