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)

Male Bahama Woodstar Flashing; an attack


Male Bahama Woodstar hummingbird perched on a twig. Most of the time his gorget appears dark, but a couple of times when he turns to the camera it flashes a brilliant purple. The next video shows a brief encounter between 2 hummers; the attacker is probably a male
