Avon Lake Schools report that one eaglet appears to have gone missing from the nest at Redwood School.
As of last week, the mother Eagle had laid three eggs, a rare event, since often eagles lay only two, or if they lay a third, it usually does not hatch.
“We have noticed that one of the eaglets has not been in the nest, and we have reason to believe that it may have died. If a third eagle is born, the first week is critical because the other two dominate the feedings,” reports the school.
“We will continue to watch the remaining two eaglets.”
