The Mountain Chat (or Mountain Wheatear) is endemic to SW Africa. It has a rather confusing range of plumage patterns, males varying from black to a very pale grey, some with white caps and some with black. All have a white rump, white tail feathers and a white wing patch. It is quite common within its range usually being found on rocky hillsides. This bird was photographed by the big granite boulder caves on track behind Spitzkoppe.
