2nd bald eagle egg hatches in Avon Lake nest, 1 egg left
AVON LAKE, Ohio (WOIO) - A second bald eaglet hatched at Redwood Elementary School early Monday.
At 6:57 a.m., parents Stars and Stripes met their second eaglet in less than 24 hours.
The first bald eagle hatched at 11:35 a.m. on Easter Sunday.
The first egg was spotted on Feb. 23. Avon Lake Schools said another egg was seen in the nest on Feb. 27. The third and final egg came on March 4.
The school placed a 360-degree angle camera at the nest so eagle enthusiasts can become 24/7 bird watchers through a livestream on YouTube.
You can watch these parents around the clock as they prepare for the arrival of their hatchlings on the Eagle Cam.
According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the bald eagle typically is found near sizable bodies of water, such as the marshy regions near Lake Erie.
A pair of eagles tend to build a nest between October and early December. Then, the female eagle lays one to three eggs in mid-February to late March, which usually incubate for 35 days before hatching.
The only egg left is expected to hatch soon!
