How about Mountain Wheatear? Here's a picture from Wikipedia:
The males vary a great deal in plumage. Sometimes the white shoulder patch is present, sometimes it's absent. Some have a white cap, some don't. Sometimes the white undersides extends well onto the breast, at other times it's restricted to the belly or even just the vent.
Where did you see the bird?
