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)

hummer and bananaquits at the feeder


There's a feeder just outside the windows near where we usually eat our meals; here's a typical example of what goes on. The bare branches you see are those of a frangipani tree (or "plumeria"), which is leafless until mid-may, when it explodes in yellow flowers, followed by its summer foliage (which blocks the view of the pond). Other frangipanis nearby are white and have delicious fragrance, and still others are red, pink or orange.
