Names that other countries have for this feature:
Conspicuous, pyramid-shaped mountain, 1,035 m, at the N side of the mouth of Crane Glacier, on the E coast of Graham Land. In 1928 Sir Hubert Wilkins gave the name Mount Napier Birks, after Napier Birks of Adelaide, Australia, to two conspicuous, black peaks which he observed and photographed from the air as lying close N of his Crane Channel. This coast was charted by the FIDS in 1947, but it has not been possible to identify Wilkins' Mount Napier Birks. Since Crane Channel was definitely identified as Crane Glacier, the UK-APC recommended in 1950 that the name, shortened to Mount Birks, be given to this conspicuous mountain lying close N of the mouth of the glacier.
