What do baby cardinals eat? please help me! FAST!

I found a cardinals nest in a bush that is about to fall because of our 30 mile per hour winds. it has 2 baby's and 1 egg. I live way out in the country and there is no rehabilitators in my area. I have had experience with bluebirds and robins But cardinals idk. what should I do? I put the best back farther in the tree but it keeps falling. the baby's are 2 days old. what should I do to feed them and take care of them?
