I think this is a Young Bald Eagle or a Golden Eagle

Golden was reported a few days ago so I may be hoping too much.

My photos aren't the best but I thought someone may know something about its shape.

He had splotchy white all over,

Thank you so much

Assuming it's not a lighting or photo issue, those significant white armpits (or wingpits, I guess ) would indicate young Bald Eagle.  

Young Goldens would have the white patches only at the base of the primaries; adults none at all.
