The parent Eagles welcomed three hatchlings into the world, starting with two on Friday and followed by one more on Sunday.
The first new member of the Eagle family arrived at 9:44 a.m. Friday. The second was close behind, already pecking a hole in its egg the same day. Eaglet number two arrived that evening at 9:53 p.m. At that time, Eaglet number three was already making its way into the world, too, and officially broke free of its shell at 6:33 p.m. Sunday.
The happy family resides in a tree just outside Redwood School in Avon Lake.
The parent Eagles established their nest there in 2014 and have produced offspring each year since. Their names, ‘Stars’ and ‘Stripes’ were assigned by Redwood students, who held a contest to identify the parents.
A live video offers a great way to watch this fascinating work of nature as it develops. Keep an eye on the camera! The link is up at www.TheVillagerNewspaper.com
Congratulations Stars and Stripes!
