Could this be a golden eagle? What about the 5th bird?

White axillars and white on the wing linings is a feature NEVER presented by Golden Eagle. If Goldens sport white on the underside of the wings, it is at the bases of the flight feathers, nowhere else. Additionally, the head and bill are far too large for Golden, which has a small bill on a small head. Finally, Golden Eagle bills are never flat black, usually gray. These features are all covered well in Sibley.
