I once had dinner at the Corowa (NSW) golf club.  It was just on dusk and
the lawns were floodlit and attracting lots of moths.  Probably over a
dozen $birds were hawking these all the time I was there.  In this case
all the local birds no doubt knew this was a good place to eat dinner.  I
had some nice trout.
