Subject: nighthawks Blue Ridge Pkwy 235 Alleghany Co
In the evenings we have checked during the last week we have seen from 15 to 149 nighthawks per evening, but last evening we saw many hundreds swarming, mostly in groups of 50 to 80, directly over our house near MP 235 on the Blue Ridge Pkwy, before streaming to the southwest. This a common sight in late August and the first few days of September every year in this valley just north of the Parkway here in Alleghany County.
