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.

With the abundance of wild turkeys in North America, and the popularity of turkey hunting, the answer to the question; "How many species of wild turkeys are native to North America?" might surprise you. Because the answer is one! The Meleagris gallopavo. And even more surprising there are only two species of wild turkeys in the world.

The Osceola "tom" generally stands 3 to 3.5 feet tall and weighs around 20 pounds. The female weighs almost the same as an Eastern wild turkey but is about a foot shorter.

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

The Rio Grande wild turkey was first described, and named, by George B. Sennett in 1879. Sennett described it as intermediate in appearance between the eastern and western subspecies, hence its scientific name Meleagris gallopavo intermedia

Eastern Wild Turkey Range:Their natural range covers the entire eastern half of the United States; from Maine in the North to northern Florida in the South, and extending as far west as Michigan. Their population is estimated to exceed 5 million. Their habitat also extends to the eastern region of Canada.

The Osceola "tom" generally stands 3 to 3.5 feet tall and weighs around 20 pounds. The female weighs almost the same as an Eastern wild turkey but is about a foot shorter.

It is very similar in appearance to the Eastern wild turkey, except that it is physically smaller and its colors are much darker. It also has white and black bars on its primary wing feathers, but unlike the Eastern, the Osceola's wing bars are small and much more erratic and less uniform in size.
