Another cool night produced only 22 macro moths of 13 species and there were no new species for the year. There was another Briseis Underwing (Catocala briseis) in the bait trap which photographed quite well.  As there are so few moths for today's blog I've included a photograph of an eclipse plumage Wood duck that I took this afternoon at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary which is located in the center of Calgary...  Tonight should be warmer so hoping for more moths for tomorrows blog.  I'm off to the Waterton Provincial Park area in Southern Alberta tomorrow and will be taking my light traps with me.  I'll report on any new moths I encounter.
