I replied as you were seeking a response and I waited a while. As no responses happened, I've replied.
If you release it, it will starve or be predated, whichever happens first. If a fledgling is in a road, the best course of action is to move it from danger. Taking it home just results in death as by the time it gets anywhere it is too late and if stress doesn't kill the bird, starvation or mishaps will. You did ask for advice. Mine is politically incorrect so the best advice is Germain's and Wendy's.
