What to do about cat semi-killing birds?

A young cat that I took in in in an emergency situation, expecting to be able to rehome her quickly, is turning out to be a skilled bird hunter, which is really stressing me out. The thing is, she doesn't kill them, just seems to incapacitate them so that they can't walk or fly.

I can't keep her inside because I have a pet door for my dogs, and other two non-killer cats; she is eager to be outdoors, and roams all over. I've been trying everything to find her another home, and I'm on the waiting list to turn her over to the Humane Society. I've ordered a "cat bib" for her to wear in the future, with me or with a new home.
But my question is, what is the right thing to do with a bird she brings? I am fairly sure they will not be able to survive on their own.
