Subject: Nighthawks in Yadkin R. Valley
Hi birders:

Sorry for the late posting. This past weekend I attended the Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention along the Yadkin River near the tiny town of Ferguson NC. On Saturday night, with low-hanging clouds after a day of rain, I noticed ca. 20 Common Nighthawks circling in the festival lights only a few hundred yards from the river. I assume they were feeding on insects attracted to the lights. They must have been migrating because they were not present the night before.
