Vultures Spotted Around Arlington

It seems that a small flock of vultures has taken up temporary residence in Arlington over the past week.

The birds of prey have been spotted around the county, often with an eager eye trained on a potential meal.

“A raccoon got smushed by a car on the street by my house Sunday and when I drove down the street, I saw about 4 vultures gathered around the carcass, trying to get at it between cars streaming down the street,” said Dana M., a Lyon Park resident, in an email. “Thought this was a weird sight to see in urban Arlington. I’ve seen raccoon, possums, foxes, and hawks, but never a vulture.”

In another instance, a county employee spotted two vultures casually hanging out on a deck outside the Department of Human Services building at Sequoia Plaza.

A third possible vulture spotting happened amid the high rises of Ballston.
