I may live in San Diego County, but my home and heart will always be in Missouri.

I saw a Bald Eagle gliding on the thermals today with another bird that seemed to be either playing with the Eagle or something. They were probably 1000' in the air. The other bird was, from my vantage point, a light brown color. Could this have been a Female Bald Eagle? Or is it common for other raptors to torment Bald Eagles in flight?
Female bald eagles aren't brown. Immatures are, so it could have been that. Other raptors won't 'play' with each other in flight, but here in CT for example we get a small influx of Golden eagles in the winter/spring, and they have been seen interacting with the local Bald eagles. It's definitely common for many birds to torment or harass eagles.
Was the bird roughly the same size? All corvids will harass eagles, and I've seen gulls do it as well.
