Guajolote norteño o cocono captado dentro de un proyecto de monitoreo biológico comunirario en el APFF Campo Verde, Chihuahua.
Esta es una de las 3 subespecies reconocidas en México y la más abundante, a pesar de ser una presa cinegética y de cacería de subsistencia muy codiciada nuestros registros indican que tienen una buena abundancia local dentro del ANP.

Description from Wikipedia

The turkey is a large bird in the Meleagris genus, which is native to the Americas. One species, Meleagris gallopavo (commonly known as the Wild Turkey), is native to the forests of North America. 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.
