Why a hummingbird?
The hummingbird: a symbol of hope
To them, the hummingbird’s characteristics are reminiscent of the journey experienced by young parents who are coping with the death of their spouse. The hummingbird is the only bird that can fly backwards, side to side, hover in one place or move forward, reflecting the fact that grief is never a linear journey. The bird uses it’s long beak to bypass the outer bitterness of the flower and reach deep to find the nectar and beauty that exists inside.
