The western rock nuthatch is a small passerine bird which breeds from Croatia east through Greece and Turkey to Iran. This nuthatch is largely resident apart from some post-breeding dispersal. The eastern rock nuthatch ''Sitta tephronota'' is a separate species, which occurs further east in south-central Asia.
