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)

2 females battle it out in Manorville

Dominick has posted this wonderful video of 2 female hummingbirds fighting over his feeders in Manorville. One of them is presumably Lady Di (the female who successfully nested in Dominick's backyard last year), and I will call the other one Camilla (for reasons that will be obvious to Brits and those Americans who follow the antics of the British royals; see for example http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2747189/Shocking-new-details-poison-scarred-Harry-s-childhood-royal-biographer.html). Notice that although there are several feeders, each with several ports, they absolutely will not share.


Dominick has also posted the following cool vid of one of his ladies feeding at a window feeder.


Makes one want to move to Manorville!
