Very small Old World passerine bird which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering, but usually perch to feed most of the time. The specific name jugularis is Medieval Latin for "of the throat".
