Vinous-throated parrotbills are songbirds, normally living in east Asia.

They are kept as cage birds in Europe. In northern Italy, vinous-throated parrotbills were freed. They nest there since 1996.

Dutch journal Natura (2013, #2, p. 4) reports that in 2012 it was proved that this species nests near Weert in the Netherlands as well.
