We visited the eagle nest at about 9:10 AM and found a second eaglet bobbing its head above the rim of the nest. It is probably 2-3 days younger than the first and is noticeably smaller and has more white down. There is a large dark object sticking up in the nest-- It may be a bean pod from a locust tree, perhaps on a branch that they brought in.
Jewel was roosting on the supporting limb to the right of the nest.
The male (Pride) flew in with a rather large prey item and the female (Jewel) proceeded to feed the eaglets.
She was careful to give plenty of attention to the smaller eaglet and the older seemed to wait patiently as she fed it.
Pride watched on and later exited behind the nest to the east. Here is a family portrait:
