Ok, I'll do that, but I'm sending a shot of a pair of turkey vultures. Note the red heads also.

Go to google. Click on images. Then search bald eagle underside. Some are completely different, but several are a perfect match for this. Hawks aren't even close. I didn't look at Falcons. I probably should.

I pulled my camera off the tripod and did a handheld shot with my 150-450 and 1.4X converter mounted — about 630 mm. Shutter speed was at 1,000th. Turned focus manually to infinity and I think the camera locked on as well. But the result is less than 20% of frame. I assumed it was a hawk, but when I rendered it I could see if it’s no hawk i know. Matches up well to bad eagle underside pics on the web. Fun stuff.
