Len Willan brought to my attention the existence of an Australian Whistling Moth....more on that later.

The discussion brought to mind a small bird in the Amazon Rainforest. The Red-capped Mannequin...a quick trip to YouTube and the video is there.

Here is another related video. (sometimes slow to load)

Again, this video is also related to Kimberly Bostwick's research.
