Violet-green Swallow female

The Violet-green Swallows are spending a lot of time resting in the general area near the nestbox, and flying up to it, but not often going inside. This photo, taken today, shows that the female seems to have very short tail feathers, but I'm not sure if the camera angle in relation to the long wings just makes them seem shorter, or if they are just growing in following a molt. I'll be watching to see if they appear to grow longer during the coming week.
