Elephants and a Redstart

Mooching around the town one day this week we realised we were in the presence of a troop of well-trained and silent elephants watching us from over a garden fence. Hard to know if this was a deliberate effect created by the owner of the property, but it was striking enough to be worthwhile sharing.

Also seen in the garden have been the first of the early moving fall warblers with good views of Black-throated Green Warblers, Yellow Warblers, a briefly glimpsed (presumed) Magnolia Warbler and this nice, female American Redstart.
