Hi all, just starting to try to name the birds I've been taking images of. Can someone please confirm that this is a juvenile bald eagle? Down at Jericho beach in Vancouver.

(I'm guess three years old because it looks like the head is starting to lighten and the feet are yellow now.)

Thanks!
DR

Now this one I know (other birds, not so much :mrgreen:).
You are correct - a juvenile bald eagle, 3rd going into 4th year. You noted the increasing white on the head (tail would also have more white on it) and yellow feet; also the eye is almost yellow as well as the beak.
I like the 2nd pic where it almost looks like it’s saying “What? We all have to be somewhere, and this is where I am right now!”
