AVON LAKE, Ohio — An eagle egg was spotted in Avon Lake at Redwood Elementary School on Thursday.

Observers spotted the egg in the nest at about 4:02 p.m.

Last year, two eggs hatched from the pair of eagles that were affectionately named "Stars" and "Stripes" by a group of Avon Lake students. They have returned to their nest each year at Redwood Elementary School to raise a new brood.

Check out a live look at the nest through a live eagle cam here.
