The ocellated turkey only exists in North America in a 50,000 square mile area comprised of the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, northern Belize, and the El Petén region of northern Guatemala. The Yucatán Peninsula range includes the states of Quintana Roo, Campeche, Petén, and Yucatan, as well as parts of southern Tabasco and northeastern Chiapas.

Unlike the ocellated turkey, the five subspecies of the North American turkey can be found from northern Mexico throughout all the United States, except Alaska, and into Ontario, Canada.
