Western Red-tailed Hawk. Not exactly sure on what subspecies...

"Western" is a subspecies -- calurus

This Red-tail is strange because the breast is darker than the belly, right?

That's not atypical for juv, dark-morph Western Red-taileds.

I thought western referred to calurus/alascensis? Or are those two the same? Not really sure how that whole western complex works.

That eBird slash entry is used because differentiating the two different subspecies is difficult. The "English" name for alascensis" is Alaska Red-tailed Hawk.
