BASICS


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)

Bahama Woodstar Adult Male Close-Up


Filmed march 8.
Yesterday I also saw a female hummingbird poking at Thumbelina's old nest remnants - she appeared to be taking fragments of the old nest, presumably to incorporate into a new nest somewhere. I will hunt for it.

The last I heard of the 2 Aquebogue rufouses was on feb 22, when they were doing very well - in part thanks to the live fruit-flies the homeowner is releasing in her yard, to provide protein snacks. And ruby-throats are already on the gulf coast (see http://hummingbirds.net/map.html). They will be back on Long Island in less than 2 months - you should get your feeders out by tax day.
Sorry I've not been posting recently - we have been happily busy with a succession of visitors. But I will now try to post more regularly.
