BASICS: 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.
The 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)

Hibiscus Blossoms; Quogue Stabbing; will Trump stop the carnage?
Here at Calypso pink hibiscus are flowering:
Thumbelina continues her feeding/stabbing of her rapidly growing chicks. This aggressive style of feeding is characteristic of all hummingbirds - here's the same behavior at the ruby-throat nest in Quogue I filmed during the summer.
Perhaps this is the "carnage" Trump will stop?
