There's a good crop of Western Tent Caterpillar Moths out and about right now in Bellingham. I could send you (Michelle) a photo if that might help with the ID.

Subject: [Tweeters] Moths?

This is not exactly a bird question, but moths are a good food source for many species, so I thought I'd ask. For about a week now, every morning when I come to work (in Anacortes) there are dozens of moths on the ground outside my building. It seems some are alive, some not. They are brown and about an inch long with a large body. Does anyone know what these are and why they're in such numbers right now? Is there a hatch like a mayfly thing? It's kinda freaky.
