Baby Red Tail Hawks at Franklin Institute

The pair of hawks hatched live on Easter Sunday.

Self-described "hawkaholics" in Philadelphia are celebrating the arrival of a pair of baby red tail

Visitors to The Franklin Institute's live feed of the hawk nest were able to watch the hawks hatch on Easter Sunday.

It's the third straight year the mating couple has returned to its unusual urban nest on a ledge at the city's science museum.

The Franklin Institute has a webcam that allows thousands of bird lovers to watch as the hawks raise their young. Two of the three hawks hatched on Sunday, and the third is expected to emerge
from its shell at any time.

The baby hawks are expected take their first flights in early June.

By the end of June, they will have flown the coop.
