I went out late in the Savannah's Preserve, by where the adult Eagles hunt to feed their chick. Shot a couple osprey, and was chatting about gear with a visitor when he pointed out two birds. One was an osprey, this was the other. Could it be an immature baldie? Cant be the baby from the nest as it hasnt fledged yet. What do you think. The images arent the best as my shutter speed was 1/400th with my 300 and 1.4x on, and I literally just turned, pointed and shot.

I concur...looks like a juvenile baldy....appears he might be molting? I did a little research and found a pic very similar to yours, as far as the feather coloring goes...
Cheers!
