When you curl a file, you get this progress bar whether you're uploading or downloading a file.

I'm trying to curl a file on my personal laptop using cygwin and no progress bar is showing up. I checked the manual and by all accounts a progress bar should show up but it doesn't. I had to install the curl package for cygwin so maybe I edited the settings. All other stdout from normal shell commands and from other languages shows up. curl can write http gets to stdout too.
curl -O http://blah.blah.com/blah/blah.png
The file gets there fine and I can open and view it. There's just no meter.
It's just a minor inconvenience and was wondering if anyone knew how to deal with it.
I got curl sometime this summer so I don't think my version is very old. Curl does show the progress bar works fine when I run it from a windows command prompt.
TL:DR, how do I get the progress bar to show up?
