AVON LAKE, OH (WOIO) -

Many of you have been following Redwood Elementary School's live web camera of its resident bald eagles. The school set up the camera in November 2015. 

A third Eagle was born on Sunday, April 10. 

That same camera caught the first eaglet's hatching on video at 8:56 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5. A second eaglet hatched around 9:30 a.m. on Thursday. One egg remains, but is expected to hatch soon.

The mother laid her first egg Feb. 26. Another egg was spotted March 1.

Director of Wildlife from the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, Amy LeMonds, says the eagles found a safe haven.

"Eagles do tend to re-nest and they'll mate for life as long as their mate is alive and they'll continue to use their same nesting spot and get their territory," she said.

LeMonds says this is a great hands-on learning experience for the students.

"The best thing to do is to absolutely enjoy wildlife while it's happening but keep your distance, be respectful, know that the parents know how to do their job, better than we know how to do it. It's definitely a dangerous thing to be a baby animal out there, but that's what's so amazing about it," she said.

The center is hosting the first Birds of Lake Erie event. It will celebrate the nation's 100th year of migratory bird conservation. You can check it out here.
