Yes this is a very small moth with many different looks, depending on the angle of the light hitting it. It could look solid black.

It's a Tiger moth, not a tussock, and they are gregarious by nature in the earlier instars. They have a right to the milkweed too. They grow to be gorgeous little caterpillars.

SukanyaDatta you get some really nice birds, and I'm glad that your feeding the birds has made a difference. Yes it is very satisfying, humbling and relaxing.
This is the first year I am experiencing a decline in sparrows. I didn't realize this was happening, but this winter I see it. I have not seen one White-throated sparrow this winter, which I usually see many of.

I hope one day to find this. I get several different adult antlions at my moth lights.

Yes Desmond E.S.O. I actually have 6 blue jays that come. Last summer I found a nest in a front yard tree. That's a first.

Thank you. SukanyaDatta, I try to keep food out all year long, but especially in the winter. Instead of using suet, I use chunky peanut butter and most of the birds love it, particularly the woodpeckers. I throw black oiled sunflower seeds and cracked corn in and around the forsythia bushes and the cardinals and juncos prefer that because they feel more protected. We have quite a few hawks here.
