That is so special. I have seen many eagles up in the Lake Vermilion and Kabetogema-Namikan area, but this one looks huge!! Awesome that he picked the tombstone of a well respected veteran.

An awesome photo and well respected veteran. As a previous commenter stated, this belongs in a photo contest. I am surprised that this has not gone viral on the internet as less significant photos and videos have.

This is such a wonderful story, thankyou to those responsible. I have been watching and living the Eagle Cam from Decorah. I have a new found love for this bird. It is so much more then symbolism. In watching this wonderful bird raise their babies with gentleness and what seems like love, I felt we are so lucky to be able to see into the life of something tHat was unknown. We are truely blessed and now know why they are so revered.

I wish we could get more uplifting stories like this in the news. I know some people will say, "This isn't news!" but it is. Thank you to the photographer and all who helped him, and to the writer for sharing this story!
