Calvin: Isn't it weird how scientists can imagine all the matter of the universe exploding out of a dot smaller than the head of a pin, but they can't come up with a more evocative name for it than "The Big Bang". That's the problem with science, you've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe thins of unimaginable wonder.
Hobbes: What would you call creation of the universe?
Calvin: The "HORRENDOUS SPACE KABLOOIE".
Hobbes: We should lobby to change that.
Calvin: And I think Tyrannosaur should be changed to "Monstrous Killer Death Lizard".

Given the amount of barring on the secondaries, I'd be thinking about Red-shouldered.
Agree for the same reason.
In case you're a visual person like me, here's a comparison I made (not my photos! way too nice.) to help portray this field mark.
Red-shouldered on left has white barring on the secondaries and a bit on the primaries.
Broad-winged on right has clean secondaries and primaries.
