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)

Mme W continues to feed her chicks


The chicks are much bigger now - almost filling the nest. Mme W continues to feed them a diet of insects mixed with nectar,  providing the protein needed by the growing babies. This video shows her feeding them this saturday morning (mar 19), then as usual sitting on them. There was already quite a bit of south wind which has now further increased. A cold front is approaching from the north, always preceded by a humid south wind. I'm hoping the front will bring some rain - it has not rained since the storms in early january which wrecked Mme W's first nest.
