Welcome to Whatbird!!

Where was this taken? Looks like a young Cooper's Hawk to me with that fine breast streaking, but location would be helpful.

Welcome to Whatbird!  Terrific photo!

Respectfully, when you say they sound like a Bald Eagle, have you heard a Baldie in the wild?  Many people have only heard 'Bald Eagles' on TV or in movies, and what they hear is often the dubbed recording of another raptor entirely. Bald Eagles don't sound very impressive, and sound effects guys substitute the cry of a Red-Tailed or Red-Shouldered Hawk instead.

In front of our house.  We have some nesting eagles close by. 

Sweet!  If I'd seen the BC location first, I probably wouldn't have asked.
