This not look good for an additional hatch!  Too cold to not incubate!   Hope she can feed and take care of this little cute fluff ball alone!   So very sorry about this!  Beautiful nest and eagles!   Something  must have happened to Mr. T.

Mrs. T. knows what she is doing but sometimes that isn't enough. She has built up the nest cup and that will help retain heat/warmth. The best case scenario of course is that Mr. T. comes back soon or that the second egg doesn't hatch and she just has to get food for herself and the eaglet. Mrs. T. has shown she is a great mom.

Interesting - Anyone else watching?

About 10:15 T left nest.  about 10-12 minutes later somebody new showed up.  Smaller and not the same feather necklace.  Looked around less than 5 minutes, turned around, picked up fish T has been feeding to little one - Took off - Stole the fish.  There were little bits of calling from off picture.  T came back into view, looked around, went back into bole, gathers her eaglet and also pulls egg closer in, covers them back both under and is in  motherly position.

I did rewind to see what you mentioned. I think you are correct, it was another eagle who flew in and took the fish. 

talon said this below the other day. ...
One feature you can use to ID Mrs. T. is. the black fleck on the lower part of her left eye.

I do not see a black dot in the iris of the left eye.

I think the male might be back! I'm wondering if he's a new eagle Dad.

That would be awesome if he was back!

Odd. Situation!  Little baby alone again!  Mom back brooding!  Do not know if she brought more food or if the second hatch occurred.   No information given.   Interesting that the nest info says the eagles have occupied this nest for 5 years but Amy thinks this maybe a mew Dad!   He sure is not a help!

Could be a new dad, could be an opportunist who saw an easy snack.  I suppose time will tell.  The eaglet looks nice and strong today, Mrs. T is doing great.

Wow, you are fast. I was just going to post this too. Largemouth bass but more importantly she did not seem in distress with this eagle so let's hope it is Mr. T.
