There have been a few reports of golden eagles at this location over the last week. I photographed several bald eagles when I was there - is this bird also a bald eagle or golden?

Thanks

Two-toned upperparts (leading edge of wing (coverts) lighter brown than trailing edge (flight feathers)); uniformly dark brown head (no apparent golden nape); white feathers in triangular pattern.

Hmmm...
