Juvenile Northern Rough-winged Swallow, catching its breath. I was pretty astonished by this bird, I was standing at an overlook above a small lake when the bird landed just a few feet away from me on the fence railing. It was plainly very out of breath and it sat there for a couple of minutes while it got its breathing under control. My guess is that it is newly fledged and that it is just learning the ropes of being a swallow.
