Ran into this fellow today near the airport. and was wondering what kind of eagle this was. There were 5 or 6 bald eagles about as well, but I couldn't get any decent shots of them. Any help appreciated.

One more Bald Eagle, but this one is not quite an adult - maybe 3rd year (takes 4 0r 5 to get adult plumage). Nice shot.

yep, looks likea juvenile bald eagle. they not only don't get the adult plumage (white heads and tails), but their beaks don't turn yellow till the 3 or 4th year.
