Tiger Swallowtails and Giant Silk Moths

Today there were several Canadian Tiger Swallowtail butterflies flying in Bracebridge, including one in our yard. The large "Silk Moths" will soon be coming out of their cocoons. I keep checking some Promethea Moth cocoons at the Bracebridge Ponds, but so far no action. I found what appears to be a Cecropia Moth cocoon along the Wilson's Falls trail, but it has a hole in it, so probably not viable. It may have been pecked by a Woodpecker or was parasitized.
