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)

still no hummer in Baiting Hollow but several settling in elsewhere

here's a very recent photo of a male hummingbird at a feeder in Massapequa. Courtesy of Bill and James Koller


I spent 2 hours by the woodstove, Zelenka in the background (the music, not a girlfriend) in Baiting Hollow, watching 3 feeders - but no takers! Still very wintry out there. Columbine growing but nowhere near flowering yet. So here's another clip from summer last year, with a hummer feeding at Salvia "Waverley".
