DECORAH, Iowa (KTTC) -- The eagles in Decorah, Iowa welcomed three new eaglets to its nest this week. 

The hatching, which started earlier this week and finished Thursday, drew tens of thousands of online viewers. 

Additionally, dozens of tourists have flocked to Decorah in recent days, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Internet sensation. 

The camera's operators said the live stream is the most watched in the history of the Internet, and thousands of classrooms across the country use the feed as a teaching tool.

The nest will remain populated through the spring and into the summer, until the eaglets grow strong enough to fly, in about 10 to 12 weeks.
