A third egg appeared in Stars and Stripes eagles nest on Saturday.

AVON LAKE

Nest watchers have spotted a third egg in the eagles’ nest at Redwood Elementary School in Avon Lake.

Members of the Avon Lake Bald Eagles Nest Facebook page listed the time as 5:49 p.m. on Saturday, according to the Avon Lake Bald Eagles Facebook page. The third egg comes less than a week after the first one, which was laid during the evening on March 1.

The second egg was spotted at 2:29 p.m. March 4. It was hoped that the parents, Stars and Stripes, the two bald eagles that nest behind the school on Redwood Boulevard, continued their tradition of producing three eggs.

The first egg appeared in the nest at 5:07 p.m. March 1. In previous years, Stars usually laid three eggs over a few days in early March and the eggs hatched in April. Stripes has been bringing food while Stars has nested atop the eggs.

The eggs are expected to hatch in early to mid-April based on an incubation period of 35 days.
