AVON LAKE, Ohio — The eagles are hatching!

Two bald eagles who nest every year outside of Redwood Elementary School in Avon Lake have welcomed a new brood.

Two of the three eggs have hatched as of Saturday morning.

The nest is home to a pair of eagles affectionately named "Stars" and "Stripes" by a group of Avon Lake students. Every year, they have returned to the nest to raise a new brood, and this year is no different.

You can watch a live-stream of Stars and Stripes and the eaglets, here.

Another pair of bald eagles at the Rocky River Reservation have also welcomed a new brood. You can watch a live stream of those eagles, here.

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