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 (

OPEN TODAY 9.30-12.30 and 3-6; S. greggii

We will be open today (wednesday) from 9.30 to 12.30 and from 3 to 6. See for directions, instructions etc. The image shows a hummer feeding from Salvia greggii (Autumn Sage), a 3 star hummer plant (the max is 4 stars; roses and impatiens get no stars).
Yesterday afternoon the rain started exactly at 3, as we opened, but mostly held off, and there were plenty of satisfied visitors, and hummingbirds, despite the gray soggy conditions. Visitors can always take refuge in the front cabin in heavy rain, and in light rain the front deck provides some shelter. Today the weather is beautiful, but so far I have not seen many hummers - but there are some!
