West African waxbill?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Birder here. I recently saw a small bird EXACTLY like an orange-cheeked waxbill in southern Côte d'Ivoire but with one exception. Not too difficult to identify, right? Well, this time, the whole head was orange, not just the cheeks. I haven't found any other bird in my research that is like that. Could it be that it IS an orange-cheeked waxbill with more color?
