BASICS


BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
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.
This private 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)

OPEN TODAY 9.30-12.30 and 3-6; S. greggii


We will be open today (wednesday) from 9.30 to 12.30 and from 3 to 6. See lihummer.org for directions, instructions etc. The image shows a hummer feeding from Salvia greggii (Autumn Sage), a 3 star hummer plant (the max is 4 stars; roses and impatiens get no stars).
Yesterday afternoon the rain started exactly at 3, as we opened, but mostly held off, and there were plenty of satisfied visitors, and hummingbirds, despite the gray soggy conditions. Visitors can always take refuge in the front cabin in heavy rain, and in light rain the front deck provides some shelter. Today the weather is beautiful, but so far I have not seen many hummers - but there are some!
