Was raining that day, so the bird looked a bit shabby. If an eagle, I hope to know what type of eagle.

Help me ID this eagle (?) in Mendocino county, CA-dsc01067a.jpg

Absolutely. I got a grin when I saw your photo. TVs are ugly creatures, aren't they? But boy, are they important to the ecosystem. They will even eat dead skunks. Phew!
