Meleagris gallopavo mexicana

Gould's were first described by J. Gould in 1856.

DESCRIPTION The Gould's turkey is the largest of the five subspecies and resembles the Merriam's turkey. They have longer legs, larger feet, and larger center tail feathers than any of the other wild turkey subspecies. Gould's differ by having distinctive white tips on the tail feathers and tail rump coverts which usually separate to show an "eyelash" appearance. The Gould's also has more tail feathers than the other subspecies with 20 and sometimes 22 tail feathers.

DISTRIBUTION The Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains in Mexico are the center of the Gould's turkey Mexican range, extending south from the US-Mexico border. Populations exist in Chihuahua, Sonora, Sinaloa, Durango, Zacatecas, Nayarit, Jalisco, and Coahuila. In the United States, Gould's turkeys are found in the Animas and San Luis Mountains of New Mexico and in the Peloncillo Mountains of New Mexico and Arizona.
