White Tail, White Head?

What would you think if you saw: A very large bird of prey circling above that clearly had a white head and a white tail? I'm pretty sure I know what it was that I seen, I'm just looking for other opinions.

1) It clearly had a white head
2) It clearly had a white tail
3) My first thought was "hawk" but looking at it closer I realized it was much bigger then any hawk I've seen. That was when I noticed it's white head and white tail.

4) In case it matters I'm in Northern IL.

  • I agree with everyone else, it sounds like a bald eagle. If you're still not sure, use Google images to look up birds of prey and you can compare the images with what you saw.
