AVON LAKE, Ohio — Students at Redwood Elementary School in Avon Lake decided on the names of three eaglets recently born in the nest located on school grounds.

Students held a naming contest and named the eaglets Freedom, Bravery and Mighty.

The eaglets were born in the spring to a pair of bald eagles affectionately named Stars and Stripes.

Every year, they have returned to the nest to raise a new brood.

Here are the five best places to see bald eagles in Ohio:

  • Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Ottawa County
  • Pinery Narrows area, just north of Station Road Bridge Trailhead in Brecksville
  • Killbuck Marsh Wildlife Area, Wayne County
  • Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area, Trumbull County
  • Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, Sandusky County
  • Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Ottawa County
