Naturpark Pfyn-Finges - Those who espy a wall creeper fluttering up a rock face are enraptured by its beauty. Its jerky spreading of its wide flashing carmine wings is reminiscent of a butterfly.

This crag inhabitant gains in charm because it resides in very inaccessible places and is more familiar to mountaineers than to most field ornithologists.

Status (in CH): frequent, rare breeding migratory bird.

Features: rock grey; red wings that show white patches when fluttered: long beak, thin, curved; whistles with a thin "tii, ti-oo, itii" etc.; the male has a black throat.
