WHAT DOES BROADBILL MEAN IN ENGLISH?
The broadbills are a clade of small passerine birds, Eurylaimidae. The Smithornis and Pseudocalyptomena species occur in sub-Saharan Africa; the rest extend from the eastern Himalayas to Sumatra and Borneo. The family possibly also includes the sapayoa from the Neotropics and the asities from Madagascar, although many taxonomists now separate each of the three into distinct families.
The definition of broadbill in the dictionary is any passerine bird of the family Eurylaimidae, of tropical Africa and Asia, having bright plumage and a short wide bill. Other definition of broadbill is any of various wide-billed birds, such as the scaup and shoveler.
