What evidence to support?

I'm not really sure, but in the 3rd photo you can kinda see a belly band. Also it just kind of looks more bulky and the thinly barred tail (which tells you that it's young plus the light eye) is different than a Red-shouldered Hawk.

Specifically, the tail has many dark bars that are narrower than the pale ones.  On Red-shouldered Hawks the dark bars are thicker than the pale ones.  I agree with the other points.
