from Angela Dimmitt
7/17 - Sherman/Wimisink Marsh - 11:00 adult flies out of reeds on far  bank 
for a few feet, followed by two young scrambling together.  When  they 
reach parent, it takes off again another few feet, young falling  over each 
other on foot.  Third time parent flies, one of the young does  too, other 
scrambles.  They then disappeared behind grasses/cattails.   Meanwhile a third 
bird is left behind whence they first emerged, looks too  pale for juvie but 
can't tell for sure.  It then disappeared too.   Guess I got really lucky!
