December 2019: Curl-Crested Araçari

Curl-Crested Araçari (Pteroglossus beauharnaisii)

The final month of 2019 is here and FaunaFocus will be featuring the curl-crested araçari throughout the month of December 2019.

The curl-crested araçari is the only bird with a curly-crested crown and is the second largest araçari. This docile South American toucan inhabits tropical and subtropical forests of Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil, foraging for fruiting trees in flocks of 4-12. Not as vocal as other araçaris, it makes a variety of calls.



Create art inspired by the curl-crested araçari and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
