Avon Lake, Ohio ~~ 2020/21

HWF welcomes back Avon Lake, for year 6, 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.


-- 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.

Avon Lake is a city in Lorain County, Ohio on Lake Erie. The population was 22,581 at the 2010 census. Avon Lake was first settled in the 17th century and was, along with Avon, Bay Village, and Westlake, inhabited by Wyandots, Eries, Ottawas, etc. These people settled, traded, fought, made peace, and later moved elsewhere. Avon Lake, Avon, Bay Village, and Westlake were all one territory, Xeuma.

Since there is not too much action in the nest right now I have a few nice photos from 2 people who have given me permission to post them. The first two are from Marian Prostor D'Amico.


A look from the ground at how deep this nest has gotten with a peek at one of the adults.
