Possible juvenile Harlan's RTHA

Recommended Posts

western MT,  Dec 19,2019.

Would like some feedback or confirmation on this one.  I am thinking dark-morph juvi Harlan's.  

Juvenile -  because it lacks subterminal bands on retrices and remiges.

Harlan's -  because it was a very dark bird with white speckles on throat, belly, and back, and... 

this from HawkWatch Int'l website:  "Dark-morph Juvenile ranges from completely streaked below to solidly dark. Juvenile typically has outer primaries banded at the tips, and tail tip shows "spiked" look "

This bird displays the outer primaries banded at the tips, but unless the tail is worn, I don't think I can make out a "spiked" look.
