Ocellated Turkey

Ocellated turkeys are excellent eating and are heavily hunted for food, trade, and occasionally sport, even within reserves.

Like their relatives, the North American wild turkeys, ocellated turkeys are excellent eating and are heavily hunted through their small range for food, trade, and occasionally sport, even within reserves. Large-scale clear-cutting and agricultural conversion is fragmenting habitat, increasing its susceptibility to hunting.

There are a few protected parks for the ocellated turkey, such as the Tikal National Park.
