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 (

hummer and bananaquits at the feeder

There's a feeder just outside the windows near where we usually eat our meals; here's a typical example of what goes on. The bare branches you see are those of a frangipani tree (or "plumeria"), which is leafless until mid-may, when it explodes in yellow flowers, followed by its summer foliage (which blocks the view of the pond). Other frangipanis nearby are white and have delicious fragrance, and still others are red, pink or orange.
