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)

Fort McNair and Cherry blossom

Here are some videos I had promised, showing (1) the pink flowers of the Fort McNair horsechesnut (Aesculus x carnea) and (2),(3) and (4) the white flowers of the wild black cherry, the predominant tree at the sanctuary. Lastly (5), the flowers of Beauty Bush (Kolkwitzia). Of course only the first is a good hummingbird flower.
