Cute! All 3 chicks have hatched on the EagleCam livestream

Look at the three beautiful babies.

It's the moment all EagleCam livestream viewers have been waiting for: the third and final chick has hatched.

The first two eaglets were welcomed into the world on Thursday. Then by Friday night, the third egg had really started pipping (when the chick starts cracking through the shell).

So that last eaglet must have hatched either Friday night or Saturday morning. And mom, dad, and all three babies appear to be doing great.

You can watch the big reveal of all three chicks here.

And if you're curious about names, a group of thousands of DNR EagleCam viewers appears to have come to a consensus. The first eaglet is being called Storm Chaser. The second is Rain Dancer, and the most recent is Thunder Jumper.

Mom and Dad are just ... Mom and Dad. If you want some tips on telling them apart, click here.

Worth remembering: This is nature and eagles are carnivores. The nest gets a bit gorey at times.

“Natural struggles will occur and some of the feeding or other wild bird behaviors may be difficult to watch,” the DNR warns.

The Nongame Wildlife Program needs help

The Nongame Wildlife Program works to protect more than 700 animal species in Minnesota, and operates almost entirely on donations – but barely get any now.

“If every Minnesota tax payer donated just $1, we would be so much better off,” the program wrote. “But, sadly, less than 3 percent of Minnesotans who file taxes donate to our program. Those who donate are generous, yet the donations have decreased steadily over the decades and we are in serious financial trouble.”

You can donate here if you’re interested.
