Information about the product:
Avian Sunbird Nectar
Nectar~Sunbird provides birds an important part of their daily needs.
Avian Sunbird Nectar is suitable of a lot of types, such as: sunbirds, sugarbirds, honeycreepers, spider hunters, tangers, chlorophonia,s and bulbuls. Nectar exists mainly from carbohydrates, which provides these birds for an important part of theit energy needs. These carbohydrates are complemented with fats, high-quality biological proteins, vitamins, minerals, high quality amino acids and natural spirulina.
In contrast to our hummingbird nectar the protein contents in Sunbird Nectar is higher, 8% . Hummingbirds, due to their fast metabolism need no more as 3% protein contents. Beside our nectar it is very important that you feed a good quality of soft food as TOVO Universal (low in iron), fruits and live food as mealworms, spiders, fruifflies, buffalo's and waxmoths. Growing fruitflies is a rather easy and ideal animal source for these type birds.
In our Nectar~Sunbird we added 0.25% Spirulina. This microscopic vegetable is an edible blue-green algae sold as a dry powder. It deepens feather colour and shine, stimulates breeding and enhances fertility. Spirulina platensis is very nutritious, it has 62% amino acid contents. It is world's richest source of Vitamin B12 and antioxidant ß-carotene (20 times that of carrots). Scientists recently announced that the food Spirulina dramatically strengthens the avian immune system. Spirulina protected birds from infection with the antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and E.coli. Scientists tested the theory that Spirulina platensis acts as a safe, edible broad-spectrum vaccine against bacteria or other disease-causing microbes. It is a natural green food, a safe alternative to antibiotics
