When the video is paused the bird definitely looks a mature bald eagle.

What's the location of the video?

I should mention that he thought Golden Eagle was the only other option.

I was on the ridge between the closed portion of 39 and Smith Rock, overlooking Bear Ck wilderness.

I've read there is a nesting pair at Morris.

I saw a golden eagle when on Will Thrall. This may help.

Probably a Baldy. They usually are really hard to miss ... giant flying snowballs basically.
