Observation date: October 18, 2018
Submitted by: bobscafe
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I was photographing entry 1192402 when a moth flew through the car port. It was being chased by a Kinglet or Vireo type bird that attacked the moth, causing it to fall to the ground. The bird saw me and flew off, and I recovered the moth. The wings appear to have been damaged. Believe it is also Erannis vancouverensis Vancouver Winter Moth.
