OK, now bear with me. This is a stunning image and worthy of publication! So, I must say that it is a juvenile Bald Eagle. I say this for 2 reasons. One: if Karl submits it to a magazine, he would want to know...and two: if I don't say something people sometimes wonder later on why I didn't. The ID can be difficult and always will be a conundrum, and that is always how it will be, but here are the reasons: The bill is very large and the cere is dark (yellow on Golden Eagle), the golden color is on the cap but not on the nape, the chin is whitish, the upperwings lack the tawny mottling of adult Golden Eagle (which this would be due to the all-dark tail), and the tail lacks any grayish, wavy banding of an adult Golden Eagle. I hope someone picked up an ID tip or learned a bit in the process.

Again, Jerry is correct

And, I say bear with me, because I do not want to diminish this gorgeous image (which I am personally jealous of) with a silly ID argument or correction. And I will not "police" the raptor pictures posted here for correction.

I just love the shot, may have composed it to the left but that's no biggy.

Great image.

Jerry - thanks for the nice words and also for the correct id. I'll be the first to admit I have difficulty differentiating between the juvenile bald eagles and goldens sometimes. After reading your assessment and looking through my birding books again, I would agree with your id. Nothing hurt and thanks again!!! Karl
