Sighting Record 1243106

Observation Notes: 
12-13-2019 I was trimming back a trumpet vine and came across what I originally thought might be a hummingbird nest. Considering it was Dec. I figured it was too late & whatever it was got caught in the changing seasons & had was dead. So I cut the branch loose & brought inside. Today it hatched & out fell, what a google reverse image search called, a "red velvet" moth though -when just googling the name itself I havent found any results. It comes very close too looking like a tulip tree moth, and may be that, but Im just not sure.
Region:

Location Notes: 
We have a pretty mild winter, sev 60+ degree days (hence trimming back a vine in Dec). No snow, only a handful of very cold night with temps in the teens.
