VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTHR) - A bald eagle was waiting for employees at a Virginia tax preparer's office Monday morning.

America's symbol of freedom was perched inside the window of the H&R Block office in Virginia Beach after crashing through a glass window earlier in the morning. It hung around inside the business for awhile before flying off.

The eagle didn't appear to have any major injuries, but Virginia Beach wildlife rehabbers are hoping to track it down to see if it suffered any trauma.
