"Osceola Wild Turkey or Florida Wild Turkey (M. g. osceola) (Scott, 1890)Found only on the Florida peninsula, they number from 80,000 to 100,000 birds. This bird is named for the famous Seminole Chief Osceola, and was first described in 1890. It is smaller and darker than the Eastern Wild Turkey. The wing feathers are very dark with smaller amounts of the white barring seen on other subspecies. Their overall body feathers are an iridescent green-purple color. They are often found in scrub patches of palmetto and occasionally near swamps, where amphibian prey is abundant."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Turkey...What is fascinating is that this sub-species is only found in Florida, which gives them the smallest natural range of any of the wild turkey species.
great video pyoung!!
