The bird one is all wrong - the one on the right is just a baby bald eagle.

No, it’s not! This is a young bald eagle:

The color pattern is entirely different, the beak shape is different, the flight style is different (wings stretched out rather than tucked in). I know very little about harriers, so I can’t confirm that the bird shown is one, but it’s definitely not an eagle.

Maybe he was being sarcastic?

It’s a common refrain on the FBMID page. There are so many reposts from people who are wondering if an American Robin, say, is a baby eagle. You would be astonished by the basic lack of knowledge that many people have regarding the natural world!

That’s even worse than the “creagle.”
(“Creagle” being the experienced birder’s term for a crow carrying a large white object. People think that the white object is the head, and that they are seeing a bald eagle.)

But if the crow is flying, you could see that it doesn’t have a white tail, right?

It seems that would be the case, but it’s easy to be perfect in a theoretical world. I’ve made so many mistakes that I don’t believe I’m above anything any more, and I don’t believe anyone else is either.
