Female or Juvenile Tree Swallow? - Eastern Ontario, Canada

Thought this was simply a female tree swallow, shot today, but now I'm having doubts as to what it is exactly. Have never seen one this brown with so little blue before. Any thoughts?

Just an unusually brown female Tree Swallow is my thought. Don’t know what else it could be. . ..

It can't be a juvenile because it's too early in the season.
