Meleagris ocellata occurs in south-east Mexico (Yucatán peninsula), north Guatemala (north Petén) and north-west and west-central Belize1,7. It is probably most common in Belize where there are several quite large populations in protected areas and it is locally abundant2,7,8. However, it has been extirpated from north Yucatán, west Campeche, east Tabasco and north-east Chiapas, Mexico3, and numbers and habitat quality are presumably declining elsewhere4. Although common in some reserves, it is generally rare6 and breeding season survival rates for females (60-75%) and poults (15%) are low in Tikal National Park, Guatemala4,5.
