I have now approved about 250 waivers, all those up to about 1.07 pm aug 17. I hope to approve all those up to the end of aug 18 tomorrow morning. Please be patient! And don't make multiple requests: it merely slows up the process. REQUESTS ARE BEING APPROVED IN ORDER OF RECEIPT.
I have to ration waivers to keep the number of visitors to a reasonable level, so the capacity of the parking lot is never exceeded. The tidal wave of request is ongoing, but I hope that everyone who wants to visit will be able to do so before we close at the end of august. After that date only visits by mutual private arrangement are possible.
PLEASE ONLY MAKE ONE VISIT THIS YEAR, SO AS TO LET NEWBIES SEE THE SANCTUARY. Next year things should settle down to a more normal level, like that we have had over almost all of the last 15 years.
PLEASE DON'T ATTEMPT TO VISIT UNLESS YOU BRING A WAIVER. WAIVERS ARE NOT AVAILABLE AT THE SANCTUARY ITSELF.
The Google Map shows exactly where we are, but you need to study it carefully, particularly because someone has now removed the "Terry Farm Road" sign.
A blog that provides up-to-date information about the world's leading (according to Google) hummingbird sanctuary, on high bluffs overlooking Long Island Sound, Riverhead, New York. The sanctuary is private and not open to the general public. Paul's Email: paul.adams%stonybrook.edu. We sometimes livestream from the sanctuary, at youtube.com/channel/UCvTj9WdD0zItyBLI6m-U9Og/live
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).
