The flowerpeckers are a family of passerine birds found in tropical southern Asia and Australasia from India east to the Philippines and south to Australia.

These are very small, stout, often brightly coloured birds, 10 to 18 cm in length, with short tails, short thick curved bills and tubular tongues. The latter features reflect the importance of nectar in the diet of many species, although berries, spiders and insects are also taken.

2-4 eggs are laid, typically in a purse-like nest suspended from a tree.
