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.
