the beautiful little Bahaman Woodstar (Calliphlox evelynae), found on virtually every island and cay of the Bahamas, has not become established else- where. The West Indies possess numerous and notable species of this family, in particular the Streamer-tail (Trochilus polytmus)of Jamai- ca, and the tiny Bee Hummingbird (Mellisuga helenae) of Cuba, the smallest bird in the world. Honey-creepers (Coerebidae), a heterogeneous group related to finches tanagers, and wood warblers, comprise another family largdy dependent on flowers. More
