William, it is likely that your cat found a newly hatched bird that had been pushed out of the nest and would have died anyway. It could have been a late hatch and pushed out by the bigger stronger siblings or it could have been one that hatched in a nest with a cowbird egg in it and when the larger cowbird chick hatched it pushed its smaller rival out, as they generally do.

It is doubtful the cat got the chick out of a nest. We always belled our cats with great jingly collars which pissed the cats off but cut way down on bird predation.
