What you have is a large Moth, I'm not sure what kind but I'll see what I can find out about it on Google Image Search.

We birders switch over to Butterflies, Moths, Insects, and other critters when the bird activity is slow. Even when Bird activity is high we have a major interest in butterflies, too.
