Avon Lake: Feathering the nest

Stars and Stripes, the two bald eagles that nest behind Redwood Elementary School on Redwood Boulevard in Avon Lake, are parents again! One egg appeared in the nest at 5:07 p.m. on Sunday, keeping up with a tradition since the pair built the nest in 2014. In years past, Stars usually lays three eggs over a period of a few days in early March and the eaglets break out of their shells in April. "We're hopeful there will be more," said Redwood Elementary School Principal Lindsey Holeman. Daddy Stripes has been bringing food while Stars has nestled atop the egg since Sunday. For those interested in keeping an eye on the eagles and their growing family, watch the 24/7 Eagle Cam on YouTube.com (AvonLakeEagleCam).
