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 (

Interesting Livestreams

I'm continuing to livestream Fred and friends. When the stream is live you can see it here, when it's not this link will take you to my channel "Fred Smith", where you can see archived versions of previous livestreams, many of them annotated to show the times of various incidents. For example yesterday I streamed for nine hours 15 minutes, and the entire livestream is available at

Underneath the video is a caption, with the time 33:00 - clicking this will take you to the 33 minute mark, and you will then see an interesting sequence of events, starting with Fred on his usual perch, then attacking Bob the Wren who has been trying to commandeer it, and ending with Fred on a much closer perch. Please note that it takes Youtube time to process these long videos and for the first day or 2  you will see low resolution version. These eventually convert to 1080p HD versions, though because of my limited upload bandwidth this will often not be achieved.
