Looks Like Just One Eaglet

Now that I've decided to sell my 5D Mark III, I wanted to try the big Sigma zoom with a crop sensor camera again. I did two things to try and improve the image quality. I shot at f/11, even though that is in diffraction territory, and I shot mostly at 400mm, where the lens is supposed to be sharper. ISO 1600 gave me fast enough shutter speeds in the early morning full sun.

I spent about an hour at the nest viewing site. I saw both adults but only one eaglet. I'm pretty sure that if there were more than one in the nest two would be occasionally visible. The nest was also left unattended by both adults for about ten minutes at one point although one adult was in a nearby tree.
