(In Thai: นกจู๋เต้นสระบุรี)

The rufous limestone babbler (Gypsophila calcicola) is a species of bird in the family Pellorneidae.

It is endemic to the limestone hills of central Thailand. It was formerly considered a subspecies of the variable limestone babbler (G. crispifrons) but a 2020 study recovered it as a distinct species.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest.
