Order PASSERIFORMES

Flowerpeckers
This family is restricted to the Oriental and Australia regions. In our area, they resemble sunbirds in habits and appearance but are distinguished by their shorter less curved bill, stumpy tails, and minute size. Some species have brightly coloured males and dull-coloured females, whereas others have both sexes similar and plain coloured. (Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)
