The wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is a ground bird native to North America.­ It is the same species as the domestic turkey, which was originally derived from a southern Mexican subspecies of wild turkey.­

Although native to North America, the turkey probably got its name from a domesticated variety of somehow similar birds, the guinea fowl (same family, but different species) being imported to Britain in ships coming from the Turkey & Levant region (now days Israel & Lebanon).­ The British at the time therefore associated the wild turkey with the country Turkey and the name prevailed.­
