M. g. osceola
The Osceola turkey is found only on the Florida peninsula, but their population still fluctuates between 80,000 to 100,000 birds. This turkey is named for the famous Seminole Chief Osceola and was first described in 1980. It is smaller and even darker than the eastern turkey. The wing feathers are very dark with smaller amounts of the white barring seen on other sub-species. The Osceola turkey’s overall body feathers are an iridescent green-purple color.
