Blue-capped Cordon Bleu
The blue-capped cordon bleu is a small finch native to East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, and Tanzania). They are found in dry grasslands, shrubby terrain, and deserts. They are omnivorous and feed mostly on seeds and small insects.
Blue-capped cordon bleus, (also called waxbills) are popular pets, but they are difficult to breed in captivity; thus the capture and trade (legal and illegal) of wild-caught birds is a significant concern.
