Which sub-species and morph is this adult Red-tailed Hawk?

Recommended Posts

The bird was seen south of Council Bluffs, IA, in October last year.  I doesn't look like the typical Eastern ssp that's prevalent in my area.  It appears to "buffy".  Definitely not a Harlan's.  I'm torn between a Western or Northern ssp.  I don't have any pics of the upper side of the bird's tail.  I apologize if I've posted these pics for ID here before, but I searched for previous posts and didn't see them.
