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)

Lady Di is back!

Some of you may remember that towards the close of last season I was featuring videos of a nesting hummingbird we called "Lady Di" (in honor of Lady Diana Princess of Wales) in Manorville. Dominick reports she appears to be back and has posted the following nice videos:

and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmW_nC1triQ&feature=youtu.be

She seems to be lapping up the calories she burned during her long trip back from central America. Let's hope she successfully nests in the same spot as last year (which often happens) or perhaps in an even more visible location. Here are clickable thumbnails of the same vids. Thanks Dominick!
