Here's a short clip of an adult male Bahama Woodstar hummingbird, just outside our bedroom window. He's perched on a twig of a large Night-Blooming Jasmine (not in flower at the moment) which has, at night, an almost overpoweringly sweet fragrance. Note the purple throat (only visible from certain angles). He's guarding a very large clump of firecracker flowers (Russellia equisetiformis) which is next to outdoor shower area. Is this Gumbo's mate?
All being well we return to Long Island tomorrow, and I will be reporting soon from the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary.
