MAR 3, 9:20 AM: Male brings in fish and feeds two eaglets

We arrived at 9:05 AM and watched for about 40 minutes. There was quite a bit of activity! The female (Jewel) was on the nest but moved to the branch to the right:



The top of the younger eaglet's head is barely visible to the left of the older chick:



Jewel then flew to roost in the pine to the east:







About 20 minutes later the male (Pride) arrived with a fish and fed the two eaglets:



He was careful to feed the smaller one (or possibly another?). The oldest eaglet waited -- you can see the top of its head behind Pride:





Jewel joined Pride on the nest briefly as he continued to feed the eaglets:



Pride then flew to roost before  taking off to the northeast:







Jewel then did some feeding before resting on the branch next to the nest:
