We saw this beautiful moth, often mistaken for a "baby hummingbird" because of its rapid wingbeat and the way it hovers at flowers while it feeds on nectar, near the Methow River in eastern Washington State. Its melliferous common name is the "Snowberry Clearwing" and it belongs to the Sphinx Moth (Sphingidae) family.

This male visits the Seattle BirdCam regularly every day. Watch for the flash of red on his head when the light hits it right and listen for the buzz of his wings.

Call of the Rufous-Sided Towhee
This Towhee is calling near the Seattle BirdCam. Not a very melodious call, and he can keep it up for what seems like hours!

Goldfinches at the SeattleBirdCam. I've add a soundtrack of three Goldfinch songs recorded the following week. The three songs are repeated for the length of the video.
