It turns out that the local place to take baby birds, rabbits and some other assorted wildlife is TLC, The Life Centre, in Leesburg, VA.
The address is 165 Ft. Evans Rd. and the phone number is 703-777-5755. I would advise calling first and making sure they can handle your emergency.
They also have a website:http://www.criticalcareattlc.com/
They hold the animal for a rehabilitator to pick up and you do have to sign a release form. There is no charge.
The little bird was alive and squeaking when it was dropped off so maybe it has a chance.
I have added some pictures to the previous post.
