This is a juvenile bald eagle. It does not have the white head and tail, but brown. Adult plumage, very distinctive, appears only at the age of 4 or 5. The underside white spots between the wrist and the body distinguishes the young Bald Eagle from the Royal Eagle that has only two white spots behind the black cuffs.
It was spotted in a rural area, near the Saint-Lawrence River shore, south of Québec City.
