The sickle-winged guan (Chamaepetes goudotii) is a species of bird in the Cracidae family.

It is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. In Ecuador, it is noted that the guans from the Eastern slope, at 61-63.5 cm (24–25 in), were much larger than birds from the Western Andean slope, at 51-54.5 cm (20–22 in).
