Notice that on these mature goldens,
they are mostly darker background
with light colored bands. Many
reproductions available have light
backgrounds with dark-lined squiggles.  
Below is a set of feathers I've painted as
mature, golden eagle wings and tails,
avialable through
Sioux Specialties.

Things to look for on immature Bald Eagle feathers are the darker leading (thinner)
edge with most of the mottling on the trailing (wider) edge. Also, the same
characteristics of a white point on the rakus of the top side and darkly mottled
rakus on the underside (not shown here)  

Bald eagles don't become 'bald' until they're about 5 years old. As fledglings they
are very darkly colored from head to tail with a gradual loss of the black mottling
as they age. Sub-adult bald eagles have most of their black spotting along the rakus
and towards the tip of the feather.
