As other snowcocks, Caucasian Snowcock is large and heavy and is gray overall with a paler head pattern and white undertail coverts. Compared to the very similar Caspian Snowcock, Caucasian is slightly darker, especially breast, and plumage includes warm tones on nape. Breeds on extreme high, rocky mountains. Song is a loonlike, desolate, far-carrying cry.
