An adult male Bahama Woodstar hummingbird (Calliphlox evelynae) filmed at Calypso, Eleuthera, The Bahamas, jan 5 2018. He's perched on an oleander twig, close to a feeder he's defending. It's fairly cool and he's rather fluffed up.
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).
