The Honeycreepers are found in the tropical New World from Mexico south to Brazil, where they are usually seen in the forest canopy.

As implied by the name, these birds feed on nectar retrieved with their long curved bills. These birds have colorful legs, long wings, and short tails. The males are typically glossy purple-blue and the females greenish.
