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 (

still no hummer in Baiting Hollow but several settling in elsewhere

here's a very recent photo of a male hummingbird at a feeder in Massapequa. Courtesy of Bill and James Koller

I spent 2 hours by the woodstove, Zelenka in the background (the music, not a girlfriend) in Baiting Hollow, watching 3 feeders - but no takers! Still very wintry out there. Columbine growing but nowhere near flowering yet. So here's another clip from summer last year, with a hummer feeding at Salvia "Waverley".
