The family of Flowerpeckers occurs in Asia and Australia. The small birds are 8 cm to 15 cm long. Many species have small ranges or are even endemic to small islands. Most eat a mixture of fruits and insects, only the Australian species lives almost exclusively on mistletoe. Most Flowerpeckers build hanging nests from plant matter and cobwebs. Both adult birds take care of the offspring.
