|This sack is made by the larvae of a moth called the Bagworm Moth, Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis which feeds on various foliage and uses its little sack as camouflage from predators.
It's interesting that this cocoon is on a water willow & looks much like the seed pods that will later emerge on the plant.
The bagworm moth larvae is often found on Juniperus virginiana, Eastern red cedar.
Yikes... those bag worms will set up house and devour the foliage from a tree in no time.
