It is not on the official Virginia list on the VSO website, and there are no other observations in eBird.
Also not on the official Maryland or DC lists either.
Quite a find!

The Prairie Falcon was well seen, perched and flying, this morning from the bicycle trail near the old power plant in Alexandria. It can often be seen from the corner of Bashford Lane and Royal Street. I parked nearby and saw and photographed it from the bicycle trail.
