Birds > Passerine > Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush Monticola saxatilis

info

Another rare bird belonging to our fauna, which finds its place in my gallery. I had three encounters with the rufous-tailed rock thrush, but only once the lighting conditions and distance were favorable to take good photos. The first encounter with the rufous-tailed rock thrush was quite interesting, and to be more specific, its ending. Several hours of waiting, and sadly nothing comes of photographing. But in the mountainous terrain suddenly the weather changed and a storm raged around, initially even with hail. We weren’t prepared for such a possibility, and descending the slopes while it was hailing was quite burdensome. We decided to wait in a little tent-hide until the storm weakens. Being a group of three on such a small space is quite tiresome, but it is better than going down the slope in the pouring rain and risking soaking our clothing and equipment. The storm was quite violent as it scared away a herd of deer, which would run in tens with terror near our tent. Of course there were no conditions for taking photos. The following encounters with the rufous-tailed rock thrush were more fruitful in taking pictures than having extreme experiences. On one occasion only I managed to see a female in the company of a male rufous-tailed rock thrush, but the midday sunlight and the distance made it impossible to take a good photo. The rufous-tailed rock thrush is also called rock thrush.
