Looks like a rough-legged to me.

Was wondering if you can help settle a debate on one of the forums I post on.  This bird was seen in Hadley, MA the other day and has caused an interesting debate as to whether it's a Rough-legged or Red-tailed.
I've yet to see a RL, but I'm having problems making this into a Red-tailed.

Any thoughts?

The two pictures can be found here:
