Avon Lake, Ohio -- 2018

HWF welcomes back, for year three, Avon Lake to it's family of Bald Eagle nests. :hi:

A pair of bald eagles who call an Avon Lake elementary school (about 20 miles from Cleveland) home can be seen 24/7 thanks to a live video feed.

The camera was installed at Redwood Elementary School and is now available to view through YouTube.

OH   major discussion   2017.jpg
-- One of the many serious discussions had by Stars and Stripes--they seem to love bickering :)


This pair of eagles started nesting at the school in November of 2014 and were named Stars and Stripes by the students. In April of 2015 two eaglets, who were named Hope and Pride, hatched and eventually successfully fledged.

"The names of the eaglets were chosen because we hope that they will come back to nest, and we have great pride that the eagles chose Redwood Elementary School to build their nest," said principal T.J. Ebert

The adult eagles have become unofficial mascots of the school and teachers incorporate them into lessons and art projects.

Some articles and videos about the Avon Lake nest ~~

"Enjoy it while it lasts" is the first lesson Principal T.J. Ebert emphasizes. Ebert acknowledges that the unlikely location of the nesting site, right above one of the school's playgrounds, might be temporary. "This is very rare, it just doesn't happen," he spoke with a tone of amazement.

2016 was a mixed season for the pair at this nest. They laid 3 eggs and all three hatched. The first and second hatched fledged near the end on June 2016. Unfortunately we lost tiny #3 on April 13th at the age of 2 days

The 2017 season was mixed as well. there were two wonderful, beautiful eaglets who fledged safely but out of the three eggs that were laid again we had one that did not hatch. All in all a successful season though. :thumlft:

It sure looks as though we may have a hatch with that nibbled on food in the nest. I have not caught a look yet.

There is still no sign of either a pip or a hatch at this nest for any of the 3 eggs. It's day 39 for Egg #1. Mom has not left the nest for several days and in fact did a very unusual PS from the nest that nearly had her doing a somersault!! :w00t:

3 tiny chicks. The youngest one appears to have a wet head

Mom tried many times to give a bite to the youngest eaglet. I never did see it take one of those bites. :(

Later in the afternoon it does appear that the tiny one does have a nice crop---hard to see with all that fuzz in the nest bowl.
