Agree, confusing as they have striped tails. Great photos. Just saw my first young golden and they are very dark with a white tail with a black band (thought I was looking at the rarely seen common black hawk before I got guidance from this group).

There is a "couple" with what looks like a large nest of sticks, "at least 3 ft across" 1st noticed a month ago, it is continuing to increase in size, we have seen 2 different looking birds, they have a white tail,  with white heads 1 is significantly larger than the other, the other couple are close to the same size, hawk like in size. I downloaded a eagle talking and it sounded just like that, then this morning a couple the 1 I saw had a white tail, and they were talking to each other, these are larger birds, SO, I don't know if it's the same couple but they definitely have a white tail.?? Opinions welcome

A smaller bird i haven't seen but smaller, it sounds like it's saying, "I PRETTY" ideas???

Haven't been able to get a picture.

But I know it was 2 eagles , as they were feeding on a deer carcass someone had thrown in the back of the church, it is a large back yard, live in the country, 17, 000 pop

@Cassandra C Antonio, welcome to Whatbird!  Yes, it sounds like you have a breeding pair of Bald Eagles.  Birds that size only share a nest when breeding, and female birds of prey are usually larger than males.
