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)

Internet back up. New vids.
After 8 days down, internet is back on here, and I can start shooting new video. There are plenty of the local hummingbirds around (the Bahama Woodstar) and here is one (young male, or a female) visiting the tubular orange-red flowers of the Geiger tree, Cordia sebestena. 2X slo-mo
And here is an adult male perched on the tip of a branch of a frangipani (or plumeria) tree. These trees are leafless at this time of year, and there's a large one just outside our living room window. It will be covered in gorgeous yellow flowers in may. It's a bit blurry because it was filmed through the window screen.
