Sounds and Vocal Behavior

Vocalizations

The call of Cinnamon Hummingbird is described as "a buzzy, scratchy tzip" (Stiles and Skutch 1989) or as "a hard to sharp chik which may be run into hard rattles" (Howell and Webb 1995).

The song of Cinnamon Humminbird is composed of "varied, high, thin, slightly squeaky chips, si ch chi-chit or tsi si si-si-sit, or chi chi-chi chi chi, etc." (Howell and Webb 1995).

For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio

Nonvocal Sounds

None reported, other than the usual "whirring" sound of the wings in flight, audible (as in most hummingbirds) at close range.
