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 (

Happy 2015 everyone! Male Woodstar closeup; lawsuit

Here's a male Bahama Woodstar hummingbird doing his thing on a twig of a Royal Poinciana tree (the spectacular flowers are long over, and now you see the huge hanging seed pods). He's guarding a very large clump of Firecracker, which I zoom out to show at the end of the movie.

I hope that all my readers will have a fabulous hummingbird season in 2015 (it only seems a short time since the Millennium!). While everyone is waiting for the first hummers of the year to arrive, late april or early may, I''ll be posting various hummer and garden vids to cheer you up. I wish I could post something substantive about the ongoing lawsuit, but my lawyer insists that I keep mum. Suffice it to say that it's still bubbling along, and casting shadows beyond the difficult year that's just past. Onward ho!
