I think it's a young Bald Eagle. I think I see a big yellow bill and some white on the underside of the wing. 

I see that now! Thanks.

I think I was looking at this the wrong way, I agree with Bald Eagle.

Haha I was looking at this the wrong way too. Agree with BAEA.

I just can't make this into an eagle with that tail, and I don't see an eagle head or beak anywhere. But really no idea. 

Eating vultures is highly contraindicated though.

Wasn’t sure on the possibility of GOEA in your area, but looking again now it’s much easier to see the big yellow/gray bill and whitish marks underneath of a BAEA when you zoom out. I was zooming in too much when I was first looking. 

@Charlie Spencer the yellow wedge on the head of the bird (looking left) is the base of the bill. I think the bill just gets a littler darker towards the tip.
