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)

Hummingbird on stilts, and in Maryland



Well, not quite. The video shows stilts on the pond, and then, hearing a hummingbird arrive at the nearby feeder, I quickly switch the view to film the hummer. One cannot imagine 2 more contrasting birds than the hummingbird and the stilt (both very aptly named).
The first hummers of 2014 have already reached Maryland - see the migration map and get your feeders ready!
