Orange-breasted Rock-jumper

Chaetops aurantius Layard, EL 1867

The Drakensberg rockjumper or orange-breasted rockjumper is a medium-sized insectivorous passerine bird endemic to the alpine grasslands and rock outcrops of the Drakensberg Mountains of southeastern South Africa and Lesotho. This taxon is closely related to the allopatric Cape rockjumper Chaetops frenatus; the two species of Chaetops are the only living members of the Chaetopidae. Source: Wikipedia
