The Curl-crested Aracari (Pteroglossus beauharnaesii), also Curly-crested Aracari, is a species of bird in the Ramphastidae family, the Toucans. It is found in Amazonian Peru, Bolivia and Brazil; also the Amazon River border of southern Colombia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
The Curl-crested Aracari is found in the southwestern section of the Amazon Basin and the Amazon River is its northern range limit; headwater tributary rivers of the Amazon River in eastern amazonian Peru, and the region of north-central Bolivia, as the headwater tributaries of the Madeira River of Brazil's Amazonas state, are included.
An extension of Curl-crested Aracari's range goes southeastwards, (into the southeast Amazon section), from the lower reaches of the Madeira River, and the adjacent Purus River from the west. This extension of range crosses only the upper-middle reaches of the Tapaj??s River and ends near the upper reaches of the Xingu River's source, 800kms upstream.
