I heard from him and he said it was an immature red tail. The dark patch mid-chest and the patterning was, he said, sure signs of it being a red tail.

Interesting. When I go back and re-look at your initial images, I no longer see what I thought was a distinct white patch immediately below the beak that led me to mention broad-winged as a possibility. Just shows that having an actual expert on tap is better than any field guide...
