On 2 August 1973, at 0300, one of us (GSB) was attracted to a second-floor window in the Lakeside Laboratory at the University of Michigan Biological Station at Douglas Lake by the fluttering of what we presumed to be a large sphingid or saturniid moth. Investigation revealed the source to be a warbler feeding on insects attracted to the screened window by fluorescent lights in the room.
