Update on Golden Eagle nestling

I checked yesterday on the Fremont County Golden Eagle nestling. The bird, which still has a lot of white on its head, was sitting in the nest where it got maximum shade on this hot day. Because it was sitting as far into the shade as possible, I couldn't get an updated photo. However, I took this photo two weeks ago and it shows the eagle nestling on the nest.

At that time I only saw one nestling and the same was true today. It is most common that only one nestling to survive as the larger more aggressive chick receives the most food so one may starve or may be pushed out of the nest by its sibling.
