A bald eagle was seen flying around the Clarendon area Saturday afternoon.

Ryan McNey snapped a couple of smartphone photos of the majestic bird in his neighborhood.

“I was about to pull into my driveway when I noticed a bunch of birds chasing another, bigger bird past my house,” McNey told ARLnow.com. “It took my a few seconds to realize that the bigger bird was actually a Bald Eagle. As I was trying to snap some pictures the eagle turned back toward where I was and swooped down to grab a squirrel that had been hit by a car earlier today.”

Bald eagles have been known to reside in and around Arlington, mostly in wooded areas, but are occasionally spotted in local neighborhoods.
