My spouse went surfing and found this bird
bobbing on the waves. There seemed to be something wrong with the bird so he took it home. Here's another pic
. The bird is very passive and doesn't move much, so we're guessing it's either ill, injured or exhausted. What bird is this? And what should we do with it? We're in Holland.

We've put the bird in a cushioned laundry basket (which we covered with plastic coated wire netting) with a bowl of water. We'll take it to the avian rescue tomorrow. I guess they'll either take it in or tell us to release it.
Meanwhile, can we help it somehow? What does it eat, what does it need? How do we best make sure it stays alive while under our care?
