Doubt there's anything you can do - if it's so sick that you can pick it up, it'll be dead soon anyway. If you're putting food out, scatter it widely so birds can feed well apart from each other, that'll cut the risks of disease transmission a bit.

Sad to say, but the chances are a Sparrowhawk, or the neighbour's cat, will sort the problem out soon.
