A pair of bald eagles who call an Avon Lake (about 20 miles from Cleveland)elementary school home can be seen 24/7 thanks to a live video feed.

The camera was installed at Redwood Elementary School and is now available to view through YouTube.

This pair of eagles started nesting at the school in November of 2014 and were named Stars and Stripes by the students. In April of 2015 two eaglets, who were named Hope and Pride, hatched and eventually successfully fledged.

"The names of the eaglets were chosen because we hope that they will come back to nest, and we have great pride that the eagles chose Redwood Elementary School to build their nest," said principal T.J. Ebert

The adult eagles have become unofficial mascots of the school and teachers incorporate them into lessons and art projects.

"Enjoy it while it lasts" is the first lesson Principal T.J. Ebert emphasizes. Ebert acknowledges that the unlikely location of the nesting site, right above one of the school's playgrounds, might be temporary. "This is very rare, it just doesn't happen," he spoke with a tone of amazement.

wave cococat. Good to see you and this eagle. This looks like another wonderful nest to watch. The children most likely learn about raptors with a nest right there.
