From the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa to India, it is found in many places. The pattern on its underwings and wedge-shaped tail make it stand out when it flies. During the warmer parts of the day, it soars on thermals.

It lives on barren, rocky hills in the Iberian peninsula, western North Africa, southern Europe, Palearctic Siberia, north and central China, and parts of the Middle East. It lives mostly in the west of its range, but Asian birds migrate to more southern areas or move down the mountains.
Rock Thrush
The common rock thrush, or Monticola saxatilis, is a bird in the family Muscicapidae. It is also called the rufous-tailed rock thrush or just "rock thrush." It used to be part of the Turdidae family.
