Could one of these be a Bald eagle?


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking the middle bird in the first pic.  I then embedded cropped pics of both birds.  Can they both be Identified by the distant, out of focus, and non-frontal postured pictures?  Bald eagle would be a FOY for me, and the first I've seen on this trail, and only my second Florida Bald Eagle.  Taken this morning in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Their legs are far too long to be eagles. They are some kind of wader (heron, egret, ibis, etc). I’m guessing they’re juvenile White Ibises but I’m not familiar with Florida waders. 

Agree 100%

Oh well.  I'm now getting a good Juvenile White Ibis vibe from the bird on the right, which is the second cropped pic, so the other is most-likely the same.
