Is this a Harlan's RTHA?

Sure looks like a Harlan. This is an adult dark morph Harlan's hawk.

It is NOT an adult. The dark band across the flight feathers is narrow and subterminal (rather than wide and terminal in adults) and the bird has yellow eyes among other features indicating that it is a juvenile.

Adult Harlan's

Okay, thanks for the information. This will help me improve my identification.
