Is this a Bald eagle?

That's a Turkey Vulture.

Cool-  My 42nd ID and more importantly, I just fulfilled one of my New Year's Resolutions which was to identify at least ten new birds in 2018!

For reference, adult Bald Eagles are black with white heads and tails.  Turkey Vultures are black with white feathers on the back half of each wing, and red featherless heads.

Most species of vultures glide more than most eagles.

Just so you know, @Bird-Boys, by replying to posts that are nearly a year old, just to agree with already confirmed IDs, you are putting old old posts at the top of ID forum and bumping the current ID requests further and further down the page or off the first page altogether. Try to keep an eye on the date of the topic you are replying to, so new ID requests aren't buried under the old ones. :classic_wink:
