Range:Established in many parts of the world (K. Islam 1997), but only really wild in Java and Bali (Chasen 1935). Madura should be included in its native range but was not because no collection had been made until the 1970s. sometimes Sumatera (Robinson in Kuroda 1933), Bawean (Clements 1933) are included in its native range. Van Marle and Voous (1988) state that the species was undoubtedly introduced to Sumatera, Alting Siberg (1846)mentioned the species as having been introduced to Bawean by the first representatives of the Dutch colonial administration on the island, Mr. H. Frederiks in 1802. Vorderman (1892) did not list the species after hsi visit, but wrote thath it was imported as a cage-bird from Surabaya from time to time. Hoogerwerf (1966 - 1967) therefore believes that the species has been repeatedly introduced with varying success and was perhaps settled by the time he was on the island.Changes in range:Perhaps the only Red Data Book bird that has enormously expanded its range, but nearly dissappeared from its natural range of Java and Bali.Nature of distribution:Open woodlands in the lowlands, especially in rice-growing areas, though not found everywhere there.Extent of habitat occurence:Difficult to calculateArea of habitat occupancy:Extremely scattered
