A blog that provides up-to-date information about the world's leading (according to Google) hummingbird sanctuary, on high bluffs overlooking Long Island Sound, Riverhead, New York. The sanctuary is private and not open to the general public. Paul's Email: paul.adams%stonybrook.edu. We sometimes livestream from the sanctuary, at youtube.com/channel/UCvTj9WdD0zItyBLI6m-U9Og/live
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).

There are 2 small cottages or "cabins" at the sanctuary. The one nearest the Long Island Sound already had a name when I arrived in 1991 - "Seagull Lodge" - and the other one I dubbed "Hummingbird Cottage". But it lacked a name plaque until now. I hope you like the one I chose - it's hand-painted by Roberta Roverelli (DipintoAdArte) in Livorno, Italy. It's ceramic, and I will probably store it inside for the winter.
