AVON LAKE, Ohio — Eagle watchers have confirmed a third egg was spotted in the nest at Redwood Elementary School in Avon Lake.

The egg arrived on Wednesday at 6:59 p.m.

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.

An egg takes approximately 35 days to hatch, so we will be on baby eaglet watch in a few weeks.

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
