Australia has no humming birds; they belong in South and North America, but Australia does have a group of birds that play the same role in nature; feeding from the nectar in flowers and transferring pollen between plants. They are the reason that many native Australia flowers are red, since red flowers attract birds rather than insects, some of which see red as black.
