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).

Sanctuary visiting procedure: pick a specific ANNOUNCED date/time, email Paul, he will send Directions/Instructions and Waiver, which you must read. If you are ok with these, email him again and he will send the necessary confirmation. It's a hassle for all but keeps things smooth. The sanctuary will be open to visitors july 26 (am,pm), 27 (am,pm) and 28 (am) (by appointment only: email paul.adams&stonybrook.edu); am = 10-12.30 and pm = 3-5. We will be open a half-day at the weekend (TBA), and three days every week until sept 15 (TBA).Please try to request an appointment at least 12 hours ahead, so there's time to do the necessary steps. 2 phone-photos from Susan Boyce, who visited tuesday afternoon.
