One of the many introduced species on St. Helena. Fortunately I had already seen the 'real ones' on Java (Indonesia) before!
The other introduced species on St. Helena are Common Pheasant Phasianus colchicus , Zebra Dove Geopelia striata , Yellow Canary Serinus flaviventris , Madagascar Red Fody Foudia madagascariensis  and Common Mynah Acridotheres tristis .

   Java Sparrow  Padda oryzivora ;  videograbs (20x).
