Blue-capped Cordonbleu

Uraeginthus cyanocephalus (Richmond, 1897)

The blue-capped cordon-bleu or blue-capped cordonbleu is native to Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South 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
