A baby birds nest was found with 5 baby birds, the mother was in it, and flew away?

when painting my deck, a baby birds nest was found with 5 baby birds, the mother was in it, and flew away, but while she was flying away, her wing hit my arm. I had no idea that the nest was there. I moved pot that the nest was in back where i found it, and went inside, and watched it (this happened early morning)... show more when painting my deck, a baby birds nest was found with 5 baby birds, the mother was in it, and flew away, but while she was flying away, her wing hit my arm. I had no idea that the nest was there. I moved pot that the nest was in back where i found it, and went inside, and watched it (this happened early morning) now it is around 4 and i see the mother flying near by but has not went back to the nest. since her wing touched me, will she come back? the baby birds are still very dependent on the mother, they still have no feathers and their eyes are still closed.. i can see from a distance that they are hungry because they keep on openeing their mouths. what should i do? and if the mother doesnt come back, how should i help them survive..i didnt touch the babys, but the mom touched me. please help!!!!!
