The rufous-tailed rock-thrush (Monticola saxitilis), which nests in small rock cavities, has rusty or reddish-brown tail feathers, for which it is named. It is also known as the common rock thrush or simply rock thrush. It breeds in southern Europe across central Asia to northern China and winters in Africa south of the Sahara. In summer the male has a striking blue-grey head.
