baby finch (realy need help)

hi
i'm faced with a problem last night my mother bought a home a baby green/gold finch after finding it being circled by some crows it had fallen from its nest with no parents in sight.
unfortunatly somehow i have being designated to look after it and i have no idea what to do i have managed to feed it 2 worms and some damp cornflakes. the other problem is i have 2 dogs not 2 mention i don't realy have no real desire to spend up to a month looking after a small and very needy young bird.
i have thought about taking him to a shelter but theres no were near by.
so please give me some advise.
how to feed it ?
what i should do about it?

If she knows where the nest is, you NEED to put it back in it. It will not survive humans looking after it. Does it have feathers? If it's a Fledging, it's supposed to be on the ground, thats where the parents take care of it until it flies.

From what I've heard from Wildlife Rehabbers as long as it hasn't been close to a week, the parents should take it back.
