WATCH: Emergency moth surgery

YouTuber Eric Nordrum found a beautiful cecropia moth being attacked by a robin, then used online instructions to repair the moth's damaged wing before releasing it.

The video says it's a butterfly, a common misunderstanding. Here's a great primer on the difference. The easiest way to tell is that moths typically have feather-like antennae.
