Certainly looks like it Greg. The only other possibility is a juvenile White-tailed Eagle but I'm sure it's not as the bill is the wrong colour for a juvenile and a 3rd winter has a pale mantle. So I'd say yes, it is a Golden Eagle.

Thanks Kevin. I initially thought it was a buzzard when i saw it. It was only later on when i had a closer look at the pic I kicked myself that I didnt try and get closer.

Looking more closely at the bill how it's thicker
and a bit more shorter leads me to believe as already
mentioned that it is a golden eagle.

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!
