How to use "Dilleniidae" in context?
The dilleniidae, commonly called dilleniids, are a family of small passerine birds. They are endemic to the New World. The family is represented by only four species, all of which are found in southern Mexico and Central America. They are small birds, with short, blocky legs and short, broad wings. Their plumage is drab, with black heads, breasts and bellies.
The dilleniids are insectivorous, foraging for insects in leaf litter or among the roots of vegetation. They form monogamous pairs or small colonies, and females lay two or three eggs per clutch.
