A pair of bald eagles residing in a tree outside an Avon Lake elementary school has welcomed another eaglet to their nest.

The pair of eagles was affectionately named "Stars" and "Stripes" by a group of Avon Lake students several years ago. They have returned to their nest each year at Redwood Elementary School to raise a new brood.

An egg hatched on Friday around 9:44 a.m. A second egg started to hatch later in the day.
