There's a whole spectrum, its kind of a false dichotomy to say "light morph" and "dark morph", in that Red-tails can have completely snowy white breast, belly, and underwing coverts, or completely solid chocolate brown breast, belly, and underwing coverts, or literally anywhere in between. 

That being said, this bird is nowhere near as dark as they come, so not really a classic "dark morph", although definitely darker than average. 

I like the rufous morphs we get out here in California, which are intermediate calurus/alascensis with bright rufous chest and chocolate brown belly band...
