I saw this large bird of prey this morning flying over Saratoga Lake in Saratoga Springs, New York. I had recently seen a Bald Eagle in the same area and thought this was the same bird from a distance. It landed and I was able to take some not so great pictures. It wasn't the same Bald Eagle but was similar in size with mainly brown coloring.

five years old.
