Immature female Northern Harrier?

Either adult female or young male/female, I'm leaning to the latter, but the lighting is tricky and without a front view..............

I have a few blurry side views.  What specific features should I look for?  Are brown eyes seen in both male & female immatures?

I was hoping someone with more experience would jump in as I've only seen a few young birds.

What I was getting at was that an adult female would have more underside streaking/markings than a young bird.

I suspect young birds both have a darker eye, so probably not possible to differentiate gender.

You have now exhausted my limited knowledge 🙂.
