NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: RESIDENT: western Palearctic from British Isles, southern Scandinavia, and western Russia south to southern Europe, Egypt, and southern Asia east to Burma and Ceylon; European populations result from relatively recent expansion and may have originated from introductions. Introduced and established in Bahamas (New Providence) and has spread from there to other northern islands in Bahamas (Grand Bahama, Abaco, Bimini, Eleuthera, Andros) and southern Florida; now common to abundant from Tampa and Palm Beach south to Key West; recently recorded north to North Carolina and South Carolina and west to Alabama. Also introduced in Japan. See AOU (1989) and Sibley and Monroe (1990).

Color legend for Distribution Map
NOTE: The maps for birds represent the breeding status by state and province. In some jurisdictions, the subnational statuses for common species have not been assessed and the status is shown as not-assessed (SNR). In some jurisdictions, the subnational status refers to the status as a non-breeder; these errors will be corrected in future versions of these maps. A species is not shown in a jurisdiction if it is not known to breed in the jurisdiction or if it occurs only accidentally or casually in the jurisdiction. Thus, the species may occur in a jurisdiction as a seasonal non-breeding resident or as a migratory transient but this will not be indicated on these maps. See other maps on this web site that depict the Western Hemisphere ranges of these species at all seasons of the year.
Endemism: occurs (regularly, as a native taxon) in multiple nations

Range Map
Note: Range depicted for New World only. The scale of the maps may cause narrow coastal ranges or ranges on small islands not to appear. Not all vagrant or small disjunct occurrences are depicted. For migratory birds, some individuals occur outside of the passage migrant range depicted.
