Sending to my local wildlife hospital now. I don't think that's a fledgling, it's a very very sick adult. Hang on, should have an answer back in 15 minutes.

I found an expert.
It is a Chukar, a Eurasian species introduced as a game bird.

And yes Winnie it is sick.

Oh, good -- my girl isn't in at work yet (late call last night). Is a vet an option for y'all, I hope? That's one unhappy little animal.

Definitely a chucker, its an imported game species and is many time planted at hunting clubs. Some states, usually western states, have wild populations in the desert from plantings long ago. They like to run up hills and then fly down. They are originally from India.
