I took this photo today and not sure what it is.
It was a long way off maybe 400 yards.
Have posted the original and a cropped photo with no PP applied.
I am guessing a juvenile Eagle but I am far from an expert.
Am sure a few of you would know just at a glance.
Thanks;

Clarence

Kind of hard to tell and if no one answers you look at this website it might tell you what it is:

Online bird guide, bird ID help, life history, bird sounds from Cornell

Possible.
The pictures on the above website show that juvenile bald eagles and golden eagles look kind of alike.

Given the location, habitat, size of head & beak I would say juvenile Bald Eagle.
