Ocellated Turkey


On rare ocassions, female ocellated turkeys have been spotted with spurs.

Although some previous reports have stated that female ocellated turkeys commonly have spurs, during 4 years of field work and trapping activities in Tikal National Park, only 1 female was seen with spurs, which were very small and best described as rudimentary buttons.
