Is this a Krider's RTHA?

Recommended Posts

Seen this afternoon at DeSoto NWR near Missouri Valley, IA.  Is this a Krider's, or just a light morph Eastern Red-tailed Hawk?  I'm also wondering age.  It's young, but is it a 2nd year bird?  Would this still be a juvenile, considering the (mostly) banded tail feathers and light colored eyes?  All of it's tail feathers are banded, except a single reddish one.  By the way, this is the skinniest RTHA I've ever seen.
