Juvenile Bald Eagles?

Recommended Posts

Something about these 2 seems a little off for juvenile Bald Eagles, just looking for verification (Golden are uncommon, but not unheard of). Taken near Savannah NY (Between Rochester & Syracuse) 4/21/22. First 2 pics are 1 bird, second 2 pics the other.

Tails didn't show any white & although the pics don't show it well, the top of the head seemed much lighter.

Golden can be ruled out on the white armpits alone. Young Goldens would only have white on the base of the tail at at the wrists.
