Rock thrush breed in wide spreed area of mountain area in Iran , I have taken this shot in Golul sarani protected area in NE of Iran . Rock Thrush (Monticola saxatilis) is a member of the thrush family Turdidae.

It breeds in southern Europe across central Asia to northern China. This species is strongly migratory, all populations wintering in Africa south of the Sahara. It is an uncommon visitor to northern Europe. This species breeds in open dry hilly areas, usually above 1500 m. It nests in rock cavities, laying 4-5 eggs. It is omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects and berries. The male Rock Thrush has a clear and tuneful song

Hello Seyed,
Good moment. Colourful Thrush.
Tried to find where exactly Khorasan-e Shemali is situated but couldn't find it on the map. Captured close to Afghanistan?

Excellent capture of the Rock Thrush. Beautifully composed action-shot of this bird... I love the way you caught the fanned out tail feathers... very nicely done. TFS



A good pic of the subject, showing some unusual behaviour. I like the detail shown in the pic as well as the DOF, POV and BG.

Hallo Seyed
A text book quality shot. Magnificent capture of this charming, screaming bird. This photo is stunning, and I like the sharpness and details you got on the plumage. A moments freeze-frame-action-pose resulting in a splendid photo. I am stunned at the beauty of this bird. I even like the sight of its mouth inside. A well focused, well framed and well presented image. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
My best regards.
