Ocellated turkey / Pfauentruthuhn (Meleagris ocellata) | Detail of the side of a male individual.
I've seen birders taking more than just one extra mile and a good effort to get a glimpse of the near threatened Ocellated turkey (Meleagris ocellata). At Chan Chich Lodge in Belize, this gem was the species I would see most often and at ridiculously close distance. As most megafauna species, the turkeys are being hunted in other places, hence being rare and shy. Hunting is banned in a vast area around the lodge, so many animals are very easy to see and not afraid of humans.
