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 this afternoon IF YOU HAVE WAIVER
UPDATE: Despite the rain (or, rather, because of it) we are open this afternoon (3-5.30 monday aug 12) but ONLY TO THOSE THAT BRING A SIGNED WAIVER. Hummers are fairly active. Park only in the posted lot, walk carefully straight down the right driveway to the admission table, ring the bell and wait.
The above photo was taken yesterday by Bridgette Kistinger.
I am electronically sharing more waivers today - please be patient, your approval will come soon!
Yesterday we were open in the morning (at short notice) and just the right number of visitors came; glorious weather and some good hummer activity. Today will be gray and a bit wet, but you can always shelter (pleasantly) in the front cabin and porch - and still see hummingbirds!
