Explanation:
This is actually a Spanish word, meaning "hummingbird". Obviously used in a figurative sense here, I leave the translation to your imagination.

I sent this as a Spanish and as a French word, because I was not sure what language it was. She responded as a French interpreter and told me it was Spanish as well as giving me the definition. Thanks!
