Miller Moth invasion?

I haven't seen anything written up about this, so I'll go ahead and ask:

Are we under a moderate miller moth outbreak, here in Longmont and on the Front Range?

The harmless moths have been absent for quite a few years now and this invasion is not nearly as bad as previous years, but they are definitely passing through this year on their way to the mountains.

One special interest group that is very favorable of the moths making a visit: birds, especially robins!
