1. ornithophily


Pollination of flowers by birds. Ornithophilous flowers are typically brightly colored, often red or orange. They produce large quantities of thin, watery nectar, and are scentless because most birds do not respond well to smell. They are found mostly in tropical areas, with hummingbirds being important pollinators in North and South America, and the sunbirds in Africa and Asia.
