Product Description

 The Blue Waxbill (Uraeginthus angolensis), also called Blue-Breasted Cordon Bleu, is a common species of estrildid finch found in Southern Africa. The powder-blue face, breast and flanks are diagnostic. Female is dowdier than male but also shows blue underparts. Call is a soft 'seee-seee', often repeated as bird flits through the lower parts of bush and scrub.

The Blue Breasted Cordon Bleu is the smallest of the 3 species of Cordon Bleu waxbill finches, reaching approximately 4.5" to 5" in length. Both parents build a dome shaped nest with an entrance at the side, out of grasses, moss and coconut fibre.  Nest is lined with feathers and soft fine grasses.  November grass and Swamp grass are favourites. Cordon Bleus will hybridize if mixed together in the same aviary. 

Diet: Basic seed mix should include Canary seed, White French Millet, Japanese Millet, and Yellow and Red Panicum.
