Kolimpriphobia is the fear of hummingbirds. It is a form of ornithophobia (the fear of birds).
Kolimpriphobic people panic around hummingbirds and avoid them at all costs. They may be unsettled by the traits of hummingbirds, such as their speed, their iridescent feathers, or their long, forked tongues. They might be afraid of being attacked by hummingbirds, despite the unlikelihood of such an occurrence.
Kolimpriphobia can be treated with exposure therapy.
