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).

Fully booked this week. Plenty more visiting dates, until sept 15 after which we permanently close,
will be posted here soon. For more info, see the right-hand column of this blog.
Hummingbirds put on some good shows for intrepid visitors this afternoon, despite the drizzle. But here's a clip from couple of days ago, showing a hummer feeding at Canna flowers. Look carefully at the very end - as often happens this hummer is driven off by another.
