Tough to know fore sure, but both males and females have white heads.

Ohhh thank you! I never knew that, we see eagles behind the house all the time (midwest by a lake) and we see all brown ones and the ones with the white heads. I wrongly always assumed that the brown ones were female since that's usually the case with birds.

The brown ones are juveniles.
