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).

Lady Di report
Photo from yesterday by Huzhong Cai. The flower of the trumpet creeper is quite deep and the hummers often perch on the lip and thrust their whole head in to feed.
Lady Di's chick continues to grow, and the remaining egg remains unhatched, as I expected. Photo by Dominick Gerace from yesterday.
