Red-cheeked Cordonbleu
Uraeginthus bengalus


First reported on 2 January 2005 at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe where 2 birds were present. This species has never been recorded in the Southern African subregion, but occurs naturally just a little way north in Zambia. However, Victoria Falls town is known for its escapees and one can't really be sure if these are genuine vagrants or not.
