what info do you need?
telling us what state/location you are in might help narrow down ID for the bird

Does it have wing feathers? If it's able to lift off the ground I would put it back where you found in. Fledglings often will sit on the ground and look abandoned, but actually they're just resting while learning to fly and the parents are nearby watching out for it.

That's a cute little one and I hope it's doing OK.
Best source for wild birds such as sparrows is Starling Talk: The Care and Feeding of Injured and Orphaned Starlings
Not sure about what type of sparrow/bird you have found but check out that website.
There is lots of information there, a recipe for feeding baby sparrows, and a forum for posting questions.
