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)

latest feeding vid; bite

Plumbago (blue), ruellia (purple), bougainvillea (pink).
And here is yesterday's feeding video - at the end she flies straight at me and buzzes with her wings, telling me to GO AWAY! - which I did.


And here's yesterday's photo of the BR bite, taken while I was sitting near Gumbo's nest. The bite itself took place 2 weeks ago, and is almost completely healed, with a small central scab that is flaking off. Sorry for the these clinical images, but they might be of interest (and encourage optimism) for Brown Recluse victims.
