Yesterday I spotted a Blue-faced Honeyeater and Forest Kingfisher having a go 
in midair, at what I first thought was a tiny honeyeater.  The victim turned 
out to be a giant moth.  It appears to be an Endoxyla sp.  Do birding aussers 
know of a site where I can have this insect identified to specific level?
