Red raspberry berries turning brown

I've been harvesting red raspberries for several weeks but now quite a few of the immature berries are turning brown and withering instead of swelling and ripening. Any ideas what might be causing this? They've been getting good moisture but not an excessive amount.

Some kind of pest, like a borer killing the canes. Look for holes!
