The photos I shared the other day are of a immature Bald Eagle. While some of you guessed Golden Eagle (and I wasn’t too sure at first myself!) let me tell you why I think it’s a young Bald.
Balds don’t get their white heads until they are about 4 years old… and it seems like the white travels all over their bodies until it finally stops at the extremes of head and tail. Until then they can be “golden” but they aren’t Goldens!
He also has white arm pits. Wing pits. Whatevers. Goldens have dark wingpits.
Ta-da! My unofficial ornithologic opinion. Yeah. Impressive, huh?
