The WV Listserver has been lit up recently with dragonfly reports:;id=131

I've noticed them recent evenings in small #s when i've been looking
for Nighthawks. Then last night - BONANZA. Many, many more than ever
b4 in the yard buzzing around just b4 dark. Wonder if it's due to the
abundant rainfall last year and early this year...

One person speculated that Nighthawks may be chowing down on the d-flies.

I haven't checked out the link below...

Subject: Dragonflies
At Mountaineer Audubon's Tuesday night's program, Hannah Clipp, PhD
candidate at WVU, presented a program on using radar to track birds. She
mentioned that any fly bio-mass including dragonflies can be seen. A
quick Google search on radar and dragonflies produced several news reports
about dragonflies in PA and Ohio.
