Sounds and Vocal Behavior


The song of Gray-and-gold Warbler is similar to that of Russet-crowned Warbler (Myiothlypis coronata), and is described as "hesitates at first, then becomes a short rising series of musical notes, e.g., titu, titu, tituyuteeteechee?" (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b) or as "a melancholy series of ringing whistles ... for example: tu ti tu ti tur-JZEE-JZEEOO" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2010).
