AVON LAKE, OH (WOIO) - Many of you have been following Redwood Elementary School's live web camera of its resident bald eagles. Well Cleveland 19 has a sad update to relay.
The news department has been following the birth of three eagles for the past few weeks and according to a representative for the school, one may have died.
The mother laid three eggs, a rare event, since often eagles lay only two, or if they lay a third, it usually does not hatch.
School officials say they noticed that one of the eaglets has not been in the nest and they believe it may have died. Officials say if a third eagle is born, the first week is critical because the other two dominate the feedings.
The remaining two eagles are said to doing fine.
The first eaglet hatched on video at 8:56 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5. A second eaglet hatched around 9:30 a.m. April 7 and the third was born on Sunday, April 10.

The school set up the camera in November 2015.
It has also incorporated the eagles into various classroom lessons and art projects.
