Would this be a juvenile barn swallow without the long forked tail? Shot in the beginning of July in Rochester, MN. There were a few Barn Swallows as well as Chimney Swifts.

shorter tail

Though it's shorter, the tail is still more deeply forked than any other regularly occurring swallow in the US and Canada. Throw in the buffy-orangeĀ under-tail coverts without dark central smudges and the barely discernible buff-orange wing linings, and there's just nothing else that this could be.
