A great looking image Troy. From a website: Female Description - Yearling female brown on back with faint greenish sheen and some iridescent greenish blue feathers. Underparts white, sometimes with faint brown band across breast.

Nice blend! Tree swallow for sure. Our juvies are more grey than brown. (FYI). Don
