Gilt-edged Tanager Tangara cyanoventris


Sounds and Vocal Behavior


The call of the Gilt-edged Tanager has been described as sharp, short notes which sound like “tsit” and “seet,” followed by an accelerating trill (Isler and Isler 1987). Lower pitched call notes have also been described as sounding like “chip” or “chup,” which occasionally will also end in a trill (Isler and Isler 1987). The songs have not been described, but can be heard online. Additional songs and calls can be heard at Macaulay Library and xeno-canto.
