About the Green Aracari

The Green Aracari is a toucan that lives in northeastern South America, where it is the smallest aracari in its range. These birds spend most of their lives in the highest trees of the forest. They don't come down very often, not even to drink or bathe which they do with rain water that collects in tree forks and leaves.
