Blue-Capped Cordon Bleu

Uraeginthus cyanocephalus

They feed on seeds and small insects since most adults are no larger than three inches in length. Unlike most bird species both the male and female will sing and dance. While courting, the male will hold nesting material in his mouth as he dances for his mate.
