The large and diverse family of honeyeaters is found in Australia, New Guinea, some Lesser Sunda Islands, New Zealand and many islands in the South Pacific. West of the Wallace Line, which runs between Bali and Lombok, there is only one species of honeyeaters. They have a length of 10 cm to 35 cm. Most species have a long, curved beak and a brush-like tongue that specializes in collecting nectar. In addition to nectar, honeyeaters also eat insects, berries and fruits to a lesser extent. For some plants, they take on the task of transferring pollen. The nests are built from plant parts on trees or in bushes. The clutch usually contains a maximum of two eggs. The altricial young are looked after by both parents.
