Hawk in Nebraska

We have mostly redtails and rough legged in winter. This I think is a bird that has been here a year. Lancaster county today

Redtail—note the belly band.

What about the tail bands? length of tail does seem to be redtail.

I'm not doing the bird count in that area, but we do have a hawk there just two weeks ago that is not a red tail.

OK, I checked the recent Nov pictures from there and this is not what I was looking for.

Redtail.

Redtail.
Tail bands are a feature seen on the sometimes-debated Northern subspecies abieticola, but also on "Western" Red-tail adults. Not sure if you're far enough west to get some "Western" genes in the population, but certainly a Red-tail to me.

They all look like dark morph Red-tailed Hawks. You indicate that they are pictures of one bird.
