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)

Birding Eleuthera; hummers nearing Long Island

Sorry for the long radio silence - we have 8 family members here, which is monopolizing my attention. One of them is my son Jamie who is an avid and skilled birder. Have a look at his blog http://ncbigyear2014.blogspot.com/ which is documenting lots of cool birds he's seeing here at Calypso and other places on Eleuthera.
I'll try to get back to filming very soon!
In the mean time check out the hummingbird migration map - http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html - which shows that rubythroats are already in southern Delmarva. Get your feeders ready - they'll be here in a few days!
