Jeff Wendorff's bird photography portfolio of honeycreepers
from the family, Thraupidae. Honeycreeper Wiki
The typical honeycreeper
is a small bird in the tanager family. They are found in the tropical New World from Mexico south to Brazil. Honeycreepers
occur in the forest canopy, and, as the name implies, they are specialist nectar feeders with long curved bills.
The four Cyanerpes species have colourful legs, long wings and a short tail. The males are typically glossy purple-blue and the females greenish. Honeycreepers PhotographedGreen Honeycreeper, Chlorophanes spiza
Red-legged Honeycreeper, Cyanerpes cyaneus Collective Noun - Honeycreeper
There is no official collective noun and so I've proclaimed that a group of honeycreepers
should be called a hive. I think that is awesome!!
