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 now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Open today 9.30-12.30 and 3-6; hummer enjoys view
lihummer.org for directions. The photos are from yesterday, by Melissa Hahn and Pat Frost. There were fewer hummers than the day before, but still adequate. Melissa's picture shows a hummer surrounded by a shrimp plant, and Pat's shows one on his/her favorite perch, a stunted pine clinging to the bluff edge.
