While doing an image search, I came across this:

Thank you, so that is TWO for golden. While I'm waiting for more responses, I guess I'll do some image searches.
I'm going to say young Bald Eagle the wings are very broad I believe goldens are a bit mor slender. there was just a sighting here of a golden and they put up a side by side comparison I'll see if I can dig it up and get back to you. Great shots by the way

If those were the immature in the lower part of your addition I'd say it was the immature bald but after viewing the video,
The Golden also had the white feathers in its most forward parts of the underside of its wings unless they were off on the species ....Hmmmm????

Thank you.

I am leaning toward immature bald eagle too...thanks to Havalotta and the search I did of a side by side comparison (not very clear shots). If you uncover the one you are looking for, please post it here.

I'm still not 100% sure...but I'm still excited to have seen it and to get some shots of it!

You must first blow up a photo, THEN paste it or you will get tiny images as such.

I'd say it's an immature bald. The wings are pretty broad and there's a lot more mottling in the lesser wing coverts than a Goldens.

Yes, I pulled out my Peterson's Guide today, and it definitely looks like an immature bald eagle. Funny that I spent so much time yesterday looking at blurry internet images while I had a good, old-fashioned book just a few feet away.
