BASICS


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)

Waiver Update; Cardinal Flower

I beleive that I have now given permission to all those who, via Google Docs, have requested a waiver form. However, it's possible that I have missed a few people out. If you have not yet received an email from me giving permission to access the waiver, please either request via Google Docs, or by emailing me directly.
The waiver system is now working well, in the sense that almost everyone brings a signed waiver (though some forget to PRINT THEIR NAMES). We should be open every day this week (except tuesday am) - BUT ALWAYS CHECK THE BLOG before setting out. I thank everyone for their cooperation!

Here's another nice recent picture by Jimmy Chiu, this time showing nectaring at cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), perhaps the best hummingbird perennnial for Long Island. Unfortunately many garden centers have cultivars and hybrids of this that lack the nectar of the species. Insist on the original!
