The Curl-crested Aracari or Curl-crested Araçari (Pteroglossus beauharnaesii) also known as the Curly-crested Aracari, is a species of bird in the Ramphastidae family, the Toucans.. It measures 40–45 cm (16–18 in) long and 190-280 grams (6.7-10 oz. ) On account of its relatively long tail and curly crest (the latter only visible up close), it was formerly placed in the monotypic genus Beauharnaisius.
