Welcome to Whatbird, that's a juvenile Starling.

I also found an injured bird about 7 weeks ago. I reside in Kentucky. Any help on what kind the bird she/he might be will be greatly appreciated. She lives in the trees in our back yard, but she still comes to me when she hears my voice and I still hand feed her. I named the bird Tweety.
Thanks,
Stefania
This is Tweety- below

Tweety is also a juvenile Starling. You can raise her up to adulthood legally; Starlings aren't a protected species in the US since they're non-native and invasive. Some are smart enough to learn to talk.

Thank you so much Liam. Ha! Ha! I have been searching the Internet forever to figure out what kind of bird Tweety is. Problem solved! Now, I have to run and let all my friends know. Thanks again.
