Curl-Crested Araçari

Curl-Crested Aracari

The curl-crested araçari is primarily a frugivore but will also take nestlings of birds, such as the yellow-rumped cacique.

The curl-crested araçari’s diet is poorly known, but it is known to be primarily a frugivore. Fruits, such as figs and those of Ocotea, make up the vast majority of its diet.

Curl-crested araçari will also eat eggs and take nestlings of birds, such as the yellow-rumped cacique (Cacicus cela). This is thought to happen most when the araçari is nesting.
