A bald eagle broke into an H&R Block building in Virginia Beach, and it’s the most American thing you’ll see all day


A bald eagle was seen “hanging out” in an H&R Block in Virginia Beach after breaking through a window of the building.
Ali Weatherton, a reporter for local news station WVEC, posted a video of the unsuspecting eagle perched on the window of the building.
Bald eagles sightings were rare in the past, as the birds of prey were at the verge of extinction due to habitat destruction, illegal shooting, and food source contamination, according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
“The bald eagle has been the national bird of the United States since 1782, when it was placed with outspread wings on the Great Seal of our country,” according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Bird watching enthusiasts in Virginia Beach didn’t have to make a trip to the local state park to capture views of the bald eagle — they just needed to get some tax help.

Not to worry, the majestic bird was able to make its escape from the building in an equally dignified exit, which Weatherton also captured on video.
