Storm the European Starling

Yesterday, some girl, no matter how much I told her to leave the bird, drove across the city to bring me a fledgling starling. She's fine, and was probably learning to fly, but I have no idea where her nest was, and I can't return her. I've been feeding her often, and she's O.K., but I don't know what to do with her. *sigh*
I just want to ask if I'm doing O.K., this is my first starling. I feed her maybe every 2 hours with a disgusting blended mix of cat food, boiled egg, apple sauce, and a calcium pill, I feed about a quarter of a 10cc syringe at a time. It's a day old, but I've refrigerated it. She asks my pigeons for food, but doesn't open her mouth for me. She has a bowl of water on-hand at all times, but not food.
She's quiet, usually, but sometimes makes the cutest squawks. She and VesperIII -a fledgling pigeon- get along beautifully.
