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 (

babies day 2; slow-mo video

Here's a close-up of the nest taken yesterday, one day after hatching. I think the babies are already almost double in size. No pictures today (we had friends from Prince Edward Island arriving).  But here below is a slo-mo version of the baby feeding movie I posted yesterday. After initial credits, filmed from Calypso's beach in normal time, there's a clip in tenfold slo-mo showing Gumbo arriving on the nest edge. The next clip, at 4 fold slo-mo, shows her feeding her chicks. The last clip shows her continuing to feed, and departing, at normal speed.
