Hard to say. Here's the bird I killed this weekend in South Carolina. The tips of his feathers are rather light. We only have Easterns.

What state did you shoot it in ?

Colorado does not have easterns, look for some images of rios and easterns and compare.

It looks like an Eastern, do a search on Google Images and try to find some comparisons.
