The humming bird, like all birds, some more and some less, symbolizes freedom, but it also has another meaning: past and future are not as important as the present is, it's important to live now, sipping the nectar of life. The lotus flower.. is a symbol of Buddhism, perfection and letting go of things that weigh you down by only letting the blissfulness of the present fill your thoughts. "Carpe Diem".
Soaking or sprouting seeds and grains are an easy way to provide your parrot with fresh live food that is similar to what they would be eating in the wild. All birds, from finches to macaws benefit from and enjoy eating these. There are different sizes and types available for every size of bird. By soaking dormant seeds they germinate and are brought back to life again. Sprouts are like little vegetable plants packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and protein.
