Blue-capped Cordonbleu

Uraeginthus cyanocephalus (Richmond, 1897)

The Blue-capped Cordon-bleu (Uraeginthus cyanocephalus) is native to Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan and Tanzania in East Africa. This small finch does fairly well in captivity given adequate conditions, however, breeding this finch is said to be quite difficult. Source: Wikipedia
