A small group of Himalayan snowcock forages along a pathway in Afghanistan’s Sarkund Valley, part of the Wakhan Corridor where WCS is conducting ongoing wildlife surveys. Just two weeks before a remote camera snapped this photo, it recorded a snow leopard prowling about with her cub. Snowcock are generally found above the tree line and below the snow line in mountainous habitat, and are a popular gamebird…and snow leopard prey.
