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).

I've been sorting through old clips from last summer in Baiting Hollow - here are a few keepers. The first shows one interrupting a snack on shrimp plant to attack an intruder.
The next is a slo-mo feeder clip.
next, feeding at various salvias
and at zinnia (slo-mo)
finally, 2 more fighting sequences
