Thanks for looking and the kind comments. Perfect lighting and cooperative eagles (although hard to find at times) really helps!!

Because of their all white head I'd guess.. We could Google it, but then that takes all the fun out of guessing

OP, great shots by the way. I've tired to photograph bald eagles before, and it's a lot harder than it looks. My results were not near as nice as yours.
