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)

Opening Day quiet! - but good hummer activity

Our opening day today was very quiet, with only 1 visitor, the excellent photographer and old friend Michael Chachkes. He saw quite a bit of activity on the front deck, and here are some of the results. Thanks Mike!
It was a perfect day, warm but fairly dry, with a wonderful westerly breeze.


rosebud sage (S. involucrata "Bethelii") - a hummer magnet.

All visits are by private invitation only - for details, see the righthand column of this blog.


bog sage (Salvia uliginosa)


shrimp plant (Justicia brandegeeana)

More to follow......
