Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources

The male blue-capped cordonbleu is identified by his all-blue head which distinguishes it from all other east African cordon-bleu. The left upper female is courtesy of Per Holmen. These photos were taken in Mkungunero, Serengeti NP, Ndutu, Tarangire NP and Oldonyo Sambu. The bird with a brown cap in the left lower photo is a male red-cheeked cordon-bleu: click it to see several enlargements which include immatures and a comparison image of blue-capped and red-cheeked males.
