Curl-Crested Araçari

Curl-Crested Aracari

Both curl-crested araçari parents help brood the chicks by incubating the eggs, feeding the offspring, and cleaning the nest.

The curl-crested araçari has both maternal and paternal parental investment as both parents help brood the chicks.

Both parents incubate the eggs for about 16-18 days, brood and feed the offspring which develop quite slowly, and share in nest cleaning duties.

Previous offspring and possibly other adult curl-crested araçari will also feed the chicks.
