Please - ID & a help to a bird in distress (SE Europe)

Can someone, please, identify this small bird that my friends found today lying helpless in a snow. Coordinates: N 45° 29.523' E 18° 05.983'
After warming up, a bird looks better, but does not fly or eat or drink.
Any suggestions for further treatment?

hi vesna,

it's a siskin (carduelis spinus). as for the treatment, just put it into a dark box for the night and try to feed it some small seeds tomorrow morning (millet, hemp). if it doesn't eat try to let it go, maybe it will just fly and help itself. it might have struck a window. probably others will come up with better nourishment suggestions.
