Leucistic bald eagel, Washington State. Feb 2014.
Confirmed with a biologist in Yakima...

"Yes, that definitely looks like a Bald Eagle. It also looks like it is leucistic, a genetic condition where pigmentation is reduced, and not just melanin. Brown or black feathers are often faded out or yellowish looking.

Very cool picture and a great find! I’ve never seen this in a Bald Eagle.
