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 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 (

Irene Closure

We will be closed today, tomorrow and monday. However, we will update the blog with news. If Irene fizzles, as I expect, we may open a few days in early september. The photo, a reminder of calm seas, is by Charleen Turner.

  1. With all of our storm preparations, the biggest worry has been for *my* hummers. They have been gorging themselves over the last week or so, and the thought of having to bring the feeders inside on Saturday night through Sunday is causing me a bit of anxiety! I am keeping one feeder out in a relatively protected area, but I wonder if they will even attempt to feed in extremely high winds? I hope you are correct, Paul, and that Irene will fizzle out by the time she gets here. Our little friends have a big trip coming up, and we have no time for such nonsense!
