Another small bird chased it into the door. I put it in a box with a towel and kept it quiet. At first it was breathing heavily then it's breathing was normal. I opened the lid and he hopped onto the box and flew a few feet away onto the patio, then he moved to a shady corner with tomato plant overhanging. Later he was hopping around the planters scratching for food.
