Thanks to the clever folks at UMass Amherst, we now have an awesome new live view of a nesting pair of Peregrine Falcons and their newly hatched chicks.

The nest, located on the roof of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, was first installed in 2003 and recently received an upgraded live cam.

“The new camera is a wonderful addition since it allows us to zoom in and out remotely in order to allow viewers to follow the action of the birds,” Richard Nathhorst, capital project manager in Design and Construction Management, said in the statement.

There are currently three baby falcons in the nest, with a fourth egg unlikely to hatch, according to UMass officials.

“The fourth egg is not likely to hatch, nor will it go to waste: At banding time in a few weeks, the egg will be removed for testing,” they tweeted. “The nonviable egg provides information that can help scientists help the species, such as pesticide levels and genomic information.”

Honestly, I’ve had this cam open on my browser for the better part of the day. The whole thing is just fascinating to watch – especially with a front row seat.

Click here to check out the cam (with sound!) and enjoy!
