Hi experts,
 I'm the proud parent of dozens of 4 hour old moth larva. Found laying
eggs in a concrete stairwell in a high rise, the parent looks like the
Cecropia of my eastcoast youth, but this is Seattle. I seem to remember
there are two native moths here that are in a similar genus the the
cecropia, but i dont know what they eat. This one had clear windows in
its wings.
 I'm currently making available plum, apple, blueberry, vine maple and
hawthorne, anybody know their natural food source?
