I.D. on juvenile swallow, Oregon

Can anyone tell me the species? It was with the barn swallows but the other juveniles were browner on the underside.
These pics were taken in northern Oregon.

Thanks

I think it's a young Violet-green.

I would suggest this is a Tree Swallow. A Violet-green should have the white from the flanks almost meeting on the rump.

Note also the clean-cut face pattern, another feature favoring Tree over Violet-green.

Yeah, I was torn. Most of the photos I looked at didn't show that much white on the face of Tree, so I went with V-G.

But I can life with an ID of tree.
