Curl-crested araçari chicks are born blind and naked and fledging occurs in 43-50 days.
Curl-crested araçari chicks are born blind and naked with short bills and thick pads on their heels to protect them from the rough floor of the nest. They sleep with up to five adults in the nest hole.
Fledging occurs in 43-50 days. Adults continue to feed the young for several weeks after fledging. Afterward, the young may form small family groups that can last until the next breeding season or until they are chased from the area.
