turkey

 

The Ocellated Turkey exists only in a 50,000 square mile area comprised of the Yucatan Peninsula range which includes the states of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatan — as well as the northern parts of Belize and Guatemala.

The Ocellated Turkey is easily distinguished from its North American cousin in appearance. The body feathers of both male and female birds have a bronze-green iridescent color mixture, although females sometimes appear duller in color with more green than bronze pigments.

Unlike North American turkeys, breast feathers of male and female ocellated turkeys do not differ and cannot be used to determine sex. Neither male nor female birds have a beard.

We reckon Mr Ocellated Turkey would have the lady turkeys in quite a tizz. Simply beautiful. Although the chappie here seems to be working awfully hard and putting on a great show only to be ignored by ladies that appear more interested in eating their dinner. We feel his pain.

The observant amongst you, Dear Readers, will know that the Wellthisiswhatithink crew are in Brisbane this weekend. And this gave us the opportunity to wander some of the loveliest gardens in Australia, with textures and colours not seen in such profusion anywhere else. Please feel free to right click and save any of these to use as your desktop wallpaper if, like us, you are captivated by the beauty. Just rotate and resize as required for your screen. Enjoy!
