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 (

where to see hummingbirds on Long Island; more slots posted

Above are a couple of recent photos by Bridgette Kistinger, taken at Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The flower is trumpet creeper. Other good places are Mashomack Preserve (Shelter Island), Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, Avalon Park (Stony Brook/Head of the harbor), and Alley Pond (Queens). But of course the best place is the BHHS! Here are some recent photographs.
