Juvenile Bald Eagle

Through a window/screen, i got one pic of a HUGE raptor that landed in the yard today.

Here are some versions of it; i tried to isolate colors and messed with exposure to try to clarify the pic. The claws were definitely yellow, and probably the beak.
I think it is a juvenile bald eagle. when it first landed perhaps a hundred feet away, i thought it was a big vulture, it was so large. (of course the vultures have gone south.)

after this picture i have added two photos i found on line that seem to verify the bald eagle possibility.
i have way mo better pics of mature bald eagles and raptors near the house, for example clicke HERE and HERE. and of course there are VULTURES all over this blog.
