Bald or golden?

Recommended Posts

I've convinced myself that this is a bald eagle - but this was in the dry area of eastern WA.  So just checking before I get excited.  Thanks in advance

This is an adult Golden, due to the small beak, golden nape, unfeathered tarsi, and brown overall. Young Bald Eagles would have more white mottling on the underside, especially near/on the body.
