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).

Fort McNair and Cherry blossom
Here are some videos I had promised, showing (1) the pink flowers of the Fort McNair horsechesnut (Aesculus x carnea) and (2),(3) and (4) the white flowers of the wild black cherry, the predominant tree at the sanctuary. Lastly (5), the flowers of Beauty Bush (Kolkwitzia). Of course only the first is a good hummingbird flower.
