BASICS: This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
The sanctuary is ONLY open certain, very limited, dates/times, starting july 20, and ending sept 15, and ONLY by specific private appointment, at particular, available "slot" times posted at this blog. No visits of any type without a confirmed appointment (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu)

CLOSED TODAY! Little Beginners
We are closed today, partly because the hummingbird numbers here are rather low at the moment. Hopefully activity will soon pick up again, and we will schedule more open days. Long Island Sound is in the background. In the meantime, here's a photo by Mollie Regozin showing a hummer approaching one of the very small "Little Beginner" feeders that are best on Long Island. They do not use too much nectar, and they are very easy to clean with an old toothbrush or even a finger.
