What a find... amazing. Definitely a Cordonbleu, but to me it looks more like a female of Red-cheeked; the color of the bill seems to fit with that species (pink with blackish tip). Male has red patches on cheeks.

What a find. We get escapees too but not as beautiful as that.

Likely introduced as (pet trade) escaped birds.
