The Problem of Building a Woodstock Nest

On Saturday I discovered that a baby bird must have fallen out of its nest onto the windshield of my car.  I'm not sure if the heat, exposure, and/or impact killed it, but its nest was on a freely moving branch and was made out of approximately 7 twigs.  I don't think it ever had a chance.  However, the parents were doing a good job of keeping cats away from the tree.
