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).

The above excellent photo was taken yesterday at the sanctuary by Rick Mei. It shows a hummingbird feeding at Mina lobata, popularly known as "Mexican Flag", or, by me, as "Mexical Toothbrush Vine".
For new readers of this blog, we plan to open to the public aug 1 - details will be posted on this blog.
