Meleagris gallopavo osceola

The Osceola is also called the Florida wild turkey. It was named for the famous Seminole Chief Osceola. W.E.D. Scott first described this particular subspecies in 1890.

DESCRIPTION The Osceola is closely related to the Eastern, but the Osceola's plumage is darker with less white veining in the wing quills. The white bars in these feathers are narrow, irregular, broken, and do not extend all the way to the feather shaft. The black bars predominate the feather. Secondary wing feathers are also black. When the wings are folded on the back, there are no whitish triangular patches as seen on the Eastern.

DISTRIBUTION The Osceola turkey is only found in Florida south of a line between Taylor and Dixie counties on the Gulf to a line between Nassau and Duval counties on the Atlantic. Birds north of that line are considered to be Eastern turkeys.
