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 (

We open today, from 3-6, for the first time this year. Please see for information, directions, instructions etc. This is especially important if you have not visited in previous years. We will also be open aug 2 from 3-6 and aug 3,4 from 9.30 to 12.30 and from 3 to 6. We will open many other dates throughout august - details will be posted here when available. You can also reserve a private time for a group of 10 or more, but only during the week. See for contact info.
Can you spot the hummingbird in the second image? He is approaching the red flowers of Salvia superba "Louie's Delight". The blue flowers are S. guaranitica. These are 2 hummingbird favorites.
