Tree Swallow

Tachycineta bicolor


While adult tree swallows are a shiny blue-green on top, juveniles are more gray-brown.This little one was just starting to fledge, and hasn't yet figured out that whole "flying" thing. The parents were still around, and brought food from time to time. This was the last of the hatchlings to leave the nest.
