via CBS New York – A soaring symbol of freedom was spotted in an unexpected place.
As CBS2’s Jessica Borg reported, a bald eagle landed in Bayonne, New Jersey.
When Diane Macchia tried pulling into her driveway, she couldn’t believe what was blocking her way.
“This is the first time I ever saw an eagle,” she told Borg.
The bald eagle, our national symbol, was not budging.
“I had to do a double-take, because I was shocked to see an eagle land in Bayonne,” her husband, Nick, said.
The couple’s surveillance cameras captured the majestic bird around 2 p.m. Friday.
Just minutes before, neighbor David La Pelusa snapped photos of the eagle around the corner on Ninth Street and Avenue A.
“In the middle of the intersection, a beautiful bald eagle just dropped down,” he said. “I said to my coworker, ‘Did you see that?’”
