History [ edit ]

This bird is originated from Java, Bali islands in Indonesia but it has spread to the South of Asia and some parts of Africa. Due to the Java´s appetite for rice it is considered a pest in some parts of its native territory. It was once a very prolific bird, but nowadays, the population of Java Sparrows is decreasing and it is considered protected specie.

Temperament [ edit ]

These birds are peaceful and get along with other aviary birds and other small finches. They don´t usually like other java sparrows on the same cage and tend to get aggressive.
