Help! Found a baby humingbird. What do we do?

My husband almost stepped on this baby humming bird on his way out of the garage (I think it is a baby though it's not extremely tiny.) It has it's feathers and flaps it's wings but can't go anywhere. I found a sugar water solution to feed it but what else? I'ts also got all kinds of teeny tiny little bugs on it esp. it's head. Suggestions please!
Thanks,
Kelly

Thanks for your reply KC!

I got a # to a woman that is a hummingbird rescuer and luckily lived 3 miles away from me. I took the bird to her and she was awaiting 4 more from as far as 2 hrs away. She had about 200 hummingbirds in different stages of recouperation and all will be returned back out. Her place was amazing for somone on her feet all of the day and night. She recently had knee surgery and has to take the birds in the incubater along with her and stop in the middle of her Phy.s therapy to feed them. She says she just can't stop knowing they'd have no where else to go for help. She's Amazing for sure . Hopely she'll be around for these little birds for a long while.
