Default one i'd never seen before

had to do some research and asking around on this one, since i'd never seen a brown swallow like this before, but the almost unanimous consensus is that it's a northern rough-winged swallow. they're apparently not particularly rare, but i've never seen one before - at least not since i started paying attention to birds - so it was kinda fun to get a nice shot of this little fella yesterday!
