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 now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Brookgreen and Caypso Gardens
It's too wet and gray to film today, so here's a very recent photo, taken by Bridgette Kistinger, at one of my favorite gardens, Brookgreen, near Myrtle Beach, S.C. It shows a male hummingbird feeding Salvia guaranitica. It's followed by 2 photos from my trip with Claire to Brookgreen in 2012. And then I show 3 clips shot just before we left Calypso (another favorite garden of mine, literally). These features various frangipani blooms (red, pink and yellow, a.k.a plumeria, which were coming into full flower as we left.
