Juvenile Tree Swallow? Eastern Ontario, Canada

This was flying in the same area as some tree swallows, so is it perhaps a juvenile? The dark area at the top of its head was the shadow of a branch. Its head was otherwise a fairly uniform color.

Looks more like a Northern Rough-winged Swallow. It's a bit early for Tree Swallows (or much else for that matter) to have had the chance to produce any juveniles quite yet.
