You can try farex/water or get some parrot hand-rearing formula eg Vetafarm or Roudybush or Wombaroo granivore mix- mix it up as per instructions and gently syringe feed it with a one ml syringe. The formula should be warm- not too hot. You may need to keep the bird warm- how warm depends on how may nfeathers it has.

If the bird is old enough to feed on its own then get some finch mix ( seed mix for finches) or green seeding grass from the garden.

Are you sure it is a finch? If it's an insectivorous species the diet may differ.

You should probably call your local wildlife carer network- if you can't find their details then the local vet should know.

Good luck

Cheers
