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 (

No current visiting opportunities; cardinal vine

Here's a slo-mo view of a hummingbird feeding at the little red flowers of cardinal vine (a type of morning glory), and perching when it can. The purple flower is porterweed - also a hummer favorite (get it only at LI Hummingbird Plants).
There is no more availability for next week (aug 21-25) but one morning or afternoon (to be decided but not aug 27 am) next weekend will be available. Please bear in mind that under the terms of the lawsuit settlement we can only open 3 1/2 days a week, either 10-12.30 or 3-5 or sometimes both. The exact times are determined a few days ahead by weather and other factors.
