It has been a number of months since Wild Turkeys have shown up at my place. Three came by at mid day today when it was in the 90s F in temp to check the area under a bird feeder.

The domestic turkey is a descendant of this species. The other living species is Meleagris ocellata or the Ocellated Turkey, native to the forests of the Yucatán Peninsula.
