Irene, thanks for the response and for the tip about Colonial Beach.  Where 
do you live in the Richmond metro area, that whippoorwills are no longer heard?
There is a Whippoorwill Lane, off  New Ashcake in Hanover, that makes me 
think others may still be hearing them in northern or eastern Hanover county.
I would also appreciate hearing from other list members about sightings or 
hearing whippoorwills or their cousin chuck-wills anywhere in the area.
