Wild Turkeys in North AmericaHow many types of wild turkeys are in North America? Just these five!

The Eastern wild turkey is most readily identified by its chestnut or chocolate brown tipped tail feathers. (it is the tail feathers that extend into the iconic "fan" display)

The Merriam is easily distinguished from the Eastern, Florida and Rio Grande subspecies by the nearly white feathers on the lower back and tail feather margins. It does have black and white color configurations on its primary wing feathers, but not in the distinctive bar pattern of the Eastern sub species.

Rio Grande's diet is very similar to the others. ie. chokecherries, bearberries, grains like corn, oats and wheat, and other bush fruit and seeds native to their habitat. They also enjoy eating insects such as grasshoppers, spiders, and beetles.

The Rio Grande Wild TurkeyThe Rio Grande wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo intermedia) is native to the central plains states and got its common name from the area in which it is found, the southern Great Plains states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Northeastern Mexico.

It has similar head coloration as the others, but with stronger blue, purple and bronze reflections. The purple and bronze reflections are also visible in its body feathers sheen.

Commonly seen as the largest of the five North American sub species, it has longer legs, larger feet and larger center tail feathers than any of the other wild turkeys already described. The predominate colorations of the Gould's are; distinctive white tips on the tail feathers and tail rump coverts, and copper and greenish golden reflections on their lower back and rump feathers.
