Fun Fact: There are 2 species of turkey and both are endemic to the new world. The very familiar North American wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is found throughout North America and the Ocellated Wild Turkey (Meleagris ocellata) that is native to Central America. Turkeys belong to the order Galliformes that also includes the grouse, chicken, New and Old World quail, ptarmigan, partridge, pheasant, chachalacas, guans and curassows. Domesticate turkeys that are raised for food and very popular across the US today are descendants from a southern Mexican subspecies of the North American Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo). The turkey features a prominent position in many eastern US Native American tribes and was even suggested by Benjamin Franklin to be our National Bird!
