One of three recently fledged. Not sure why this one didn't make it, but it was quite wet in a dry field adjacent to a spot on the creek where I've seen the adults stop for bathing and a drink. Perhaps it got too wet to take flight from the ground and . . . Don't really know what happened. Just speculating.
