The wings don't look correct for a chimney swift. I suspect it's a European starling.

This looks to be a Purple Martin, although I don't know that European Starling can be completely ruled out. Definitely giving Purple Martin vibes, though. It's pretty clearly not a swift, notice the broad wings and long forked tail- the only swift with a tail like that would be a White-throated Swift.
