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 (

Mme W squashes herself low to protect her eggs from rain; LaLa update

Filmed jan 4. There's intermittent light rain, brought by the same cold front that's menacing LaLa with freezing conditions and Mme W is  squashing herself  down on the nest to protect her eggs.
Up north, I have reports that despite the cold and windchill LaLa is fluffing herself up, and visiting the as yet unfrozen feeders and the flowers that will probably not survive tonight, and even hunting insects. Let's hope she makes it successfully through the night and that conditions quickly improve.
